The Secret to Search & Win

Need help figuring out what to search? Or what can you search for?

I wrote this information out for a reader who was confused about what she could search for on Swagbucks - and thought it might help some other newbies here:

(NOTE - these ideas can be used for any of the Search & Win sites, not just Swagbucks)

♦ Need to go shopping? Search the store name or directions. Search for the product(s) you are going to buy.

♦ Search while doing crosswords, word puzzles, and trivia questions to win a bet.

♦ Search for the weird, funny, stupid, maddening things your husband, child, or friend said to you.

♦ Search the make and model of your car, fridge, stove, computer, bicycle. Search how to take care of or repair these things.

♦ Search for information about your pets' breed. How do they housetrain, what food do they like, and how to agility train them?

♦ Search your name, your friend's name, your pet's name, or the name of your future children or grandchildren.

♦ Search for a word you heard and don't know its meaning. Search a word to figure out how to spell it. Make up a word and search for it.

♦ Search your favorite TV show - a movie you want to watch - an actor/actress - a book - music, or bands.

♦ Search weird, bizarre, and ordinary holidays - and what they mean.

♦ Search your favorite forums and discussion boards before you go there.

♦ Search what created the universe - when dinosaurs lived - or why the sky is blue.

♦ Search passages from your favorite book - or the bible - or lyrics from a song.

♦ Search every site you normally visit instead of going straight there—search for Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Hotmail, Gmail, etc.

♦ Search for YouTube videos, images, what your dreams mean, and news headlines.

♦ Search why your dog dumps his food - or has to circle three times before he lays down. Why do babies cry? When do children potty train? What are the "Mommy Wars"?

♦ Search acronyms, abbreviations, and letters used to mean something online—like BBL, FTP, TTYL, IMY, FWIW, or SITREP.

♦ Search error messages you get on your computer - or on a webpage.

♦ Search for recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Look for the ingredients or nutritional value.

♦ Search for the best prices for that new thing you are considering buying.

♦ Search for famous people, historical moments, and movie stars - fan pages, news reports, forums, and Facebook and Twitter accounts.

♦ Copy a few words from the webpage, email, or even search results you have open and search for that!

♦ Search for one word, like apples, and the first search result is "Official Apple Store."—copy and paste that into the search engine and search that. The first search result of that search is "Build a Website Store"—copy and paste that into the search engine and search that. The first search result of that search is "Easy Online Store Builder."—copy and paste that into the search engine and search that. Repeat until you win!

Hope that helps! Any word you type into the search line works.

I started using my Swagbucks in April, and I have bought two iPod Touches, a Canon Camcorder, $105 worth of dog supplies, and an Xbox 250G hard drive. I still have Amazon gift cards to spend! Obviously, this one is my favorite!
