Where would we be without Google? The Encyclopaedia Britannica would probably still be a best seller for one thing.

Despite making millions of Google searches a day, most of us aren't getting the most out of this web miner.

Do you, for instance, ask Google questions like it's an omnipotent oracle? As the following infographic from HackCollege.com demonstrates, there are much better ways of going about a search than asking Google "Where/What/How".

Prepare to become the smartest Googler in your office. Apart from those guys in IT - they probably know all this stuff anyway, but at least you'll have something to bond over now, right?
