Make Your Google Searches 10x More Efficient

google

I do a lot of searching on the Internet.

Unfortunately, by default, Google only shows 10 search results per page.

And many times what I’m looking for is not in the top ten search results on Google.

Even if I do find an item on the first page of the search results, I usually like to review several results, and I find that paging through the search results page-by-page is annoying. There are always more than ten search results, and I don’t just want to see the tip-of-the-iceberg, I want to see the whole thing at once!

So here’s how to make your Google searches 10x more efficient:

Just go to the Search Settings link in the cogwheel/gear icon located in the upper right corner of any search results page — quick link here.

Next, turn off Google Instant predictions, and then set the Results per page slider to 100, instead of the Google default of 10 per page.

Lastly, tick the box for Open each selected result in a new browser window. What this does is to open clicked links in a new tab. This is so much more useful, because after you look at the page you clicked on, you can close that tab, or just go back the Google Results tab right where you left off.

That’s it!

Now each search yields 100 results per page, and you can simply scroll down the page to see them all. No more clicking forwards and backwards through all those pages.

Now your Google searches will be 10x more efficient!

(BTW: Yahoo works the same way.)
