I was going to write a blog post about another little browser add-on designed to help people refine Google searches. Then I thought that with so many third party add-ons and other tools it’s easy to overlook the tools that Google provides so let’s look at one of those overlooked tools. Under every link summary in a Google search results page is a little link labeled “similar pages.” Click the “similar pages” link to see related content that doesn’t appear in the first page of search results.

The “similar pages ” link is a simple tool that doesn’t require any extra effort, but can show your students links that they might otherwise miss.
