What I will share with you is the best way I know how to search for just about anything. This is really useful when it comes to researching and finding information about bodybuilding and fitness topics.
There is a great tutorial on how to tap into Google’s database at http://www.googleguide.com
What I want to do here is give you some specific things that you can do at Google that will allow you to learn just about anything you want.
I want to give you some specific phrases to search for in combination with keywords to produce great information results.
Tips. If you want generalized information, this is a powerful search term. Just insert the word tips after your main term and enclose it in parenthesis. Example: “fat loss tips”, “cardio tips”, “muscle building tips”.
Mini-Course/ e-Course. Many times a fitness expert that you don’t even know about but might like has written a course on a specific topic of interest. Examples: “fat loss mini-course”, “fat loss course”, “bodybuilding course”.
Lessons. Just another variation but it can yield a variety of information ranging from courses, articles and reports. Examples: “bodybuilding lessons”, “lose weight lessons”.
Ways To. Considered more of a specific search term, this can turn out some very informative search results. Examples: “ways to lose weight”, “ways to build muscle”.
How To. A classic search term but it reveals quite a lot of information specifically on the subject of how to do something. Examples: “how to lose weight,” “how to build muscle” , “how to gain weight”.
101 / Top 10. This works out quite well because it narrows down the broad topic into what might be the most important. Examples: 101 fitness tips, 101 ways to lose weight, top 10 cardio techniques. Note: best not to enclose in parenthesis.
eBook. A really good way to find some of the top products on a particular subject. Examples: “fat burn ebook”, “bodybuilding ebook”.
Videos. Not sure how to do an exercise? If you don’t have a qualified trainer at the gym, this can be a great resource to learn how to do something. Examples: “bench press video”, “how to bench press video”, “deadlift video”.
Tutorials. What better way to get a step by step guide for a specific subject. Examples: “weight loss tutorial”, “bodybuilding tutorial”.
Articles. Another classic search phrase that yields some very high quality results. Many fitness sites have a directory of guess what? Articles. Examples: “nutrition articles”, “weight gain articles”.
FAQs. Sometimes a hit-and-miss but still worth a shot. Examples: “bulking faq”, “bodybuilding faq”.
Checklists. This one can give you some incredibly detailed results. At times, the information you’ll find it better than a paid product. Examples: “bodybuilding competition checklist”, “weight gain checklist”, “weight loss checklist”.
Guide / Guide to. You might turn up more paid products than free information but you never know and it’s still worth the 3 seconds it will take to type this into the search box. Examples: “bodybuilding guide”, “cardio guide”, “bodybuilding guide to competitions”. Occasionally you can swap out the word guide with report.
Techniques. There’s a lot of bench press techniques for increasing your pressing power or deadlift techniques. These can turn up tips and tricks you didn’t know about. Examples: “deadlift techniques”, “bench press techniques”, “squat techniques”, “breathing techniques”.
Lessons. Another type of search you can do to find specific articles, websites and guides on how to do something. Examples: “weight loss lessons”, “stretching lessons”.
Blogs. A new trend is for every fitness expert to start their own blog. Sometimes you can dig up some really good, specific information. Example: “optimum anabolics blog”, “weight gain blog”, “skinny guy blog”.
Resources. A hard one to pass up when it can give you a bookmark list you can use later. A lot of times people have consolidated lists of their favorite fitness resources. Examples: “fitness resources”, “bodybuilding resources”, “weight loss resources”.
Tricks. Much like the tips search term, tricks is another one that can dig up some goodies. Examples: “curl tricks”, “weight loss tricks”, “competition tricks”.
Newsletter. A personal favorite only because some of the best and brightest write fitness newsletters. What a great way to get information delivered to your Inbox. Examples: “beginning bodybuilding newsletter”, “burn the fat newsletter”, “weight gain newsletter”. You could end up with tons of tricks, tips and tactics if the author writes on a variety of topics.
Discussion. Looking for community support? If you are after that, you can try using this search term or maybe forum. Examples: “bodybuilding discussion”, “bodybuilding forum”, “fitness discussion”. Community support is often overlooked but essential to success. You may find a new favorite.
Products. Sometimes a paid product or a freebie is what you need. Rather then search for some generalized term, why not look for a product that meets your needs? Examples: “diet tracking product”, “bodybuilding product”, “weight gain product”.
Reviews. Curious about a supplement, a training program like Optimum Anabolics? Maybe you’ve heard of something called Burn the Fat but aren’t sure? Why go to the sales page when you can find out what others have to say. Examples: “burn the fat reviews”, “optimum anabolics reviews”, “beginner’s guide to bodybuilding and fitness review”. You can swap out the (s) and see if the results change.
Now if you don’t want to use Google’s basic search or go thru the GoogleGuide tutorials, there is a program I personally use to carry out all this research.
