When you’ve found a site that has exactly you’re after, don’t lose track of it. Your search results aren’t guaranteed to be the same from week to week, even if you always look for the same thing.

Pages and sites are moved up and down the search engine rankings according to many different factors, so the amazing set of pages you found a little while ago may not turn up in the same search today. It can be extremely frustrating to know you’ve seen somewhere that has just what you wanted but not be able to recreate how you found it or remember where it was. If you’ve stumbled across a site with a lot of relevant information don’t rely on searches to get you back there again: make a bookmark. Adding them in one long list isn’t going to be much help after the first dozen or so items, so make bookmark folders for the bookmark menu and bar and learn how best to keep track of your saved URLs.
