Best Practices Search Techniques: News

When searching for information on a specific news site, such as NY Times, do the following:

Search Term site:url (no space between site: and the URL)

For example: gun control site:nytimes.com

This will search just the site. You can also use this technique to search .gov or .edu

For example: gun control site:.gov

This will only search Government websites with .gov
