Well, first I must say your determination to find something is commendable. Indeed, it's downright impressive. I drop the query and re-enter another
variant of my search if the 3rd page hasn't popped what I want.
Second though.... If I might suggest a couple things to avoid ever having to get that far? Google and most others support Boolean search functions. If
that's chinese for meaning, don't worry...it's very simple to put this way.
If you are searching for something precise and the precision is in the wording and order, put quotes on it. Type in Obama goes to Mexico, for
instance, and you're likely to feel like you jumped in the ocean. Type "Sasha Obama" goes to Mexico with only her name in quotes and the last 3
words on their own..and suddenly, you have very very specific results locked more or less onto Sasha and not her Dad or Mom. On google at least. go
one step further, if you can, and use "Search Tools" on the left side. Within that, comes a set of date tools. Set yourself a date range for roughly
when it happened. Even if it's only the right year...it still narrows things to a very helpful level.
On current event stories, when you need information NOT part of the current event, that date range is invaluable. If you type in, again for an
example, 'Russian Warships Head to Syria', you'll get the story about an 11 ship Russian Task Force headed to the Eastern Med. The right date range
though...and if you wanted info on when the Admiral K (Their Aircraft Carrier) was there, the very same set of words in the search box will suddenly
give you the Admiral K and not the Task Force. Without the date limiting functions of the search engine? I'm not sure 100 pages would be enough.
