What's Worth Looking for on This Website?

Search Brad DeLong's Website

Search WWW Search www.j-bradford-delong.net

Good search engines like Google make it easy to find what you are looking for on the world wide web, or indeed on any website, including this one: <http://www.j-bradford-delong.net/>--as long as you know what you are searching for.

But how are you to figure what you you are searching for? If you are to construct a useful search, you first of all need to know a great deal of information about the information collection you are searching: you need hints as to what you might be able to find if you searched properly, and what it would be productive to search for.

The idea of the links below is that they will serve as a semi-subject-index to Brad DeLong's website: a set of key phrases that will serve as a substitute for subject headings, and that will pull up interesting results when clicked on and thus fed to Google.

It is true that only three people understand how searches work...."I am still trying to think who the third person is ..." (smile)

The art of searching is to know how to enjoy a little and to endure very much.

I am greatly relieved to see that the World's Silliest Dog has its own category.
