How to solve impossible search problems: Daniel Russel’s awesome Google search techniques.
This blog post starts out with a picture of a building and a riddle: What’s the phone number of the office where this picture was snapped. Not what’s the building in the picture, but what is the office (within the building) in which the picture was taken? The blog post recaps some of Daniel Russel’s tips & tricks used to reveal the answer. Some are basic, while others are more complex - but all of them will help you refine your search skills. For example, the author of the blog post, John Tedesco is an investigative reporter for the San Antonio Express-News. Using Google’s advanced search functionality, he was able to figure out how to access an insurance database in San Antonio. Feels like a modern day Nancy Drew story ;)
