[TIPS] - Nettrekker searches

Once you've done your search, say by the keyword "bridges", you'll see the first eight "hits" listed on the screen, with links at the bottom of the list to go to the next eight, or to skip to a particular page of hits. But, here's how you can filter your results even more.
Let's say that you're interested in only those sites that have learning games about bridges. Do you see the solid colored bar above your search results that has the words "Search results: bridges" in the left edge? Below that are some "shingles" that begin with "Lesson Plans", "Learning Exercises", "Learning Games", etc. Simply click the Learning Games shingle to see only those sites that contain learning games. It's that easy.
Oh, click the little PLUS (+) symbol to the left of those shingles to reveal additional filters. Pretty nice, eh?
