Keywords

Keywords are an important part of research. Keywords are the words you use to search for information about a topic. Without them we would NEVER get the results we are looking for.

 

Vocabulary

Keywords - the most important words related to a subject. Type keywords into a search engine to find articles for research.

Synonyms - 2 or more words with the same meaning or close to the same meaning.

Results page - the screen showing what the search engine found in response to your keyword search.

Alternative phrase - a different way to say or do something. Type a different word into a search engine.

 

 

Choosing Keywords Steps

1. Choose a keyword from the question given or the question you create.

2. Keywords will likely be the subject of the question. Use nouns and objects but avoid the common words.

3. Choose 3-4 words. Be specific.

4. Put the words in order of importance. Example "toxic food dog" instead of "toxic dog food".

5. Use synonyms or alternative phrases when possible.
