Bookmark Your Searches for Later
SUMMARY: Keep track of your search history so you can continue researching a list of search engine results at a later time.
Performing Internet research with a search engine and you need to look through LOTS of results? After seeing "showing 1-10 of 200,000" appear on your screen, you may realize it is not possible to view all relevant results in one sitting.
You don't have to page through all of the results at one time. With most search engines, it is possible to use your browser's "Bookmarks" or "Favorites" tool to record your current search. That way, you can step away from your computer or visit other web sites, and then when you are ready to continue researching your search results, you can merely select your Bookmark or Favorite and your search will reappear as you remember it! Plus, if you were looking at result 71 of 2000, your bookmark will return you to results 71-80 of 2000!
