use google/linux


Haven't fully tested this yet, but so far using

http://www.google.com/linux

instead of

http://www.google.com/

seems to get better search results for linux topics.

If any members know of other helpful tools or tools variations, please share.

I doubt if it finds anything that can't be found in a normal search. I suspect it is simply faster because the material is pre-sorted.
Google's exact methods are of course kept secret

I actually get better results from google.com instead of google.com/linux. To me google.com/linux filters too much.

Probably Google Hacks from O'Reily will help searching for a special needle that your searching for.
