searching tactics

At first I thought it might be fun to post a list of the various things I search for. Then I got to thinking about different techniques used to search for things on the internet, such "quotations to search for a specific order of words" and plus signs (+) to connect two words in a search, e.g. LOST + John Locke + philosophy. Things like that. I wonder what tactics ya'll use when surfing the net? In any case here is a list my searched a's, including spelling errors and bad grammar because I know that google will kindly offer me an alternative spelling option. Which brings up another question, which search engine do you prefer and why?

I love google search and I think it's way better than yahoo or any other... It give you so many options and sometime - even the correct ones!

I do the google. It's what I know, and I hear it's the best. Though, deep down I really think they are all the same. But if it's a tie on personality, Google is still better looking.
