Whether you’re doing a Google (or other search engine) search, or you’re doing a search on a specific website, use these guidelines to help you:
The fewer words you use in a search, the more results you will get.
Example: You’ll get millions of results with a one-word search in Google, but you might get just enough results if you use a one-word search on the APHA membership site.
As a professional, you should be using a professional email address, not a personal or shared email address.
Good to use: email@example.com
Not good to use: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Further, whenever possible, use an email address that associates with your advocacy or care management website (like “janesadvocacy.com” found above) rather than using an email address available to anyone and everyone.
