Structured Internet research: beyond Google and Wikipedia

Researching the internet means more than typing a search into Google and then clicking on the link to Wikipedia. Successful research does not begin at Google, it begins in your brain. First think about, who might know the answer or if there is a specific search-tool for your question. Major parts of the internet, the "deep web", are unreachable for search engines. Moreover, wide parts of the social web exclude them. So structure your research: what are you looking for, where are you looking, and which specific tools and methods exist. The more you know about the structure of the internet, the more effective your searches will be.
