Consider adding "United States" to your keywords to ensure the results pertain to where you want to be.

Google Tips

Google Tips

Consider searching economics and one of the suggested keywords above. Don't combine too many keywords into one search, try different combinations individually.

Consider limiting your results to government, education, or organization websites. You can do this in Google with the following search tips:

  • Government: add "site:.gov" to your search (Ex. gender inequality in the workplace site:.gov)
  • Education: add "site:.edu" to your search (Ex. gender inequality in the workplace site:.edu)
  • Organization: add "site:.org" to your search (Ex. gender inequality in the workplace site:.org)

Like with OneSearch, consider adding "United States" to your keywords to ensure the results pertain to where you want to be.
