I am always shocked how many people at work are not able to use Google efficently. No matter if experienced developers or graduates. They are not able to limit search results to a certain period of time, search in certain pages, for certain file types and so on. EVERY FUCKING search result gets clicked, although you can already see in the preview that it's absolute crap and not relevant at all. I could cry sometimes and the worst part is, that many of them don't want any help or suggestions.

    Im not a master at googling but i know basics. Keywords only + some special symbols to filter shit. Even with that basic knowlege i look like a god for people who ask a question in google like it was a real person...
