We are all part of an intelligent consumer society. Gone are the days when consumers would blindly belief every word that the manufacturers would narrate to them through their commercials and advertisements. Today, consumers like to dig up their own information and are not too willing to buy the word of the manufacturers. This is true for consumers in nearly every type of industry across the world, including the hair loss and hair care industry.
If you are suffering from hair loss, then the onus is on you to seek out as much information as you possibly can about your problem before resorting to a reliable form of treatment. In today’s age, solving the hair loss predicament is no longer about splashing dollar bills on expensive hair loss products and surgical treatments. The key to successfully treating your hair loss lies in acquiring extensive knowledge about hair loss. Many consumers realize that, which is why the internet is filled with users who are desperately seeking hair loss solutions.
Browsing the internet for research purposes can turn out to be quite a frustrating task if you are not sure of what to look for and where to find it. The important thing about conducting research on the internet is narrowing down your need for information. For example, if you simply type in “Hair loss” in the Google search engine bar, you will be presented with a stream of endless web site links that provide generic information on hair loss. This will confuse you and will be of little help in getting you to the root of the problem.
In order to carry out an in-depth hair loss research session that will yield amazing results, you need to follow a set of specific guidelines. Here are some of the most important guidelines that you need to take heed of:
1) Improve the Search Results by Creating a Specific Search Phrase
Typing in one or two words that relate to hair loss will produce a plethora of generic results as mentioned before. It will be very difficult for you to pinpoint what you are looking for among these results. This is where the creation of a search phrase comes into play. Developing a search phrase will help you narrow down your research. It will limit the number of results that will be displayed and will allow the search engine to present to you more sources of relevant information. The following are a list of hair loss research phrases that you can conjure up to meet your specific requirement for information:
● Hair loss symptoms
● Hair loss herbal remedies
● Hair loss causes
● Hair loss effects
● Hair loss and diet
● Hair transplant procedures
Sometimes you will be shown results in the form of article headlines or statements where the phrase or the words in the phrase will appear in the middle of a sentence. In other words, the information might not be completely relevant to you. There is no point reading an article or a blog about hair loss in celebrities which mentions hair loss and diet once or twice in passing. To avoid this problem, you can further narrow down your research by putting double quotes at the beginning and the end of the phrase. This will force the search engine to display results that specifically mention “hair loss and diet” together as a separate phrase or as a sentence.
2) Make use of the “Related Pages Tool” on Google
Sometimes you will come across web pages that provide solid information on hair loss. If you are interested in visiting other web pages that contain similar content or cover other topics in the subject that have not been addressed in the current webpage, then you can use the Related Pages Tool on Google. To do that, you need to copy the URL of the page where you have found useful information, open up a new window, head over to Google, enter the word related followed by a colon and simply paste the URL that you have copied.
This will allow Google to present other high quality pages that are similar in content or style to the one that you have stumbled upon.
3) Look For Specific File Types
There are certain types of files or certain formats of content which provide much more detailed information than other files or formats. For example, eBooks and PDF files almost always carry information of greater depth (not necessarily higher quality) than regular web pages. Although blogs and articles are very helpful in providing you condensed and compact information on a particular topic, eBooks and PDF files can give you all the additional details that you need to expand the knowledge that you have attained from blogs and articles.
To find PDF and eBooks in Google or any other search engine, all you have to do is type in hair loss space filetype followed by a space and a colon. After the colon, mention the specific file type that you are looking for. For example, “hair loss filetype: pdf.”
