    How do you "google" to get the exact and focused answers/options for which you're

    Seriously - I tried this afternoon, in an effort to solve a problem at work (with some useful logistical info), to find a simple, unambiguous "political map of Massachusetts".

    The pages I got were nonsense - often circular - clicking just brings you back and forth between two or among three or  maybe 4 pages.  I even got something about Russia and Europe - on the first page!

    This happens a lot.

    What is the right way to use quotes (or not), order your search items, and or word them?  It shouldn't be impossible to "Google" which towns surround you!

    I would personally Google "Massachusetts political map." If that fails, as it so often does these days, I would Yahoo it. I'm getting really tired of the run-around Google has been giving in the last six months -- if I don't want to buy something, it's about impossible to find what I want on many terms.

    if you're looking for a political map then best way i think would be to search through images, not web links.

    The problem is what you think as a "poltical map" is actually about distribution of political party members, and the best place to find it, is look for the state's voter registration website, and check there.

    I checked but I don't see anything obvious. You may want to write them:

    Try the search on - the results look pretty good to me. Although I'm not 100% sure what you need.

    But as wychic said, more and more I'm finding Google pretty tiresome these days. I still use it, but I now use Bing too.

    Yeh You can also use Yandex because it is very similar to the way Google used to be.
