Learn to Use Google Alerts

Google Alerts is a free tool that you can use to track keywords, websites, and topics. You can set up alerts for any number of things- from a specific city or country name to “best hikes in Oregon.” 

You’ll be able to receive email updates as new content is indexed with those keywords. This makes it easy if you’re looking for the latest information on a specific topic.

You can also set up alerts for flight deals, hotel deals, and any number of other relevant travel-related topics that you want to know about. You’ll be able to get updates when new content is indexed with these keywords as well. This way if something pops up in the future, you won’t have to go searching for it again.

There are also tons of other features that you can use with Google Alerts to make your searches easier and more efficient. You’ll be able to get updates about any new posts on specific blogs, track particular companies or people’s activity, find the latest news articles on a certain topic, etc. It really is an extremely versatile and useful tool.

Use a VPN to Access Geo-targeted Content

A VPN, or virtual private network, is a great way to access geo-targeted content. You can use it on your smartphone via an app like Tunnelbear, which allows you to choose where in the world you want to appear as if you are connecting from. 

You’ll be able to access country-specific websites and apps that might not be available in other countries. This is especially useful for those traveling internationally.

You’ll be able to protect your data when using public Wi-Fi networks while traveling as well. Public connections are notoriously not secure because they put all of their users’ information out there for hackers and scammers alike.

With a virtual private network installed though, this won’t be an issue anymore since everything will be encrypted by default so no one will have access without proper authorization or credentials first. 

Use Google Maps for All Your Travel Plans

Google Maps is a great tool to use while traveling, especially if you’re trying to get around in an unfamiliar location. You’ll be able to find landmarks and destinations easily with this app.

This can help you figure out the best way to get from point A to point B too. There are many options that give users information about transit times for different modes of transportation between two locations- including walking, biking, driving cars, and taking trains.

This will make it easy for you no matter what kind of method of travel is most convenient given your current situation. This will allow you to have real-time information about how best to get from one place to the next without having to worry too much about being late due to disruptions in service

You can also access traffic updates on Google Maps which makes planning your route easier. This is especially useful in areas with heavy traffic congestion that can add a lot of extra time to your trip. 

Google Maps also has great features for when you’re traveling internationally. You’ll be able to access public transit schedules and maps, which are usually available offline- meaning there won’t be any data charges or roaming fees while using this app abroad.

Google Search Engine Tips for Travelers

You can also use Google to do your research on the internet, but you’ll need to make sure that you’re using it in a smart way. 

A lot of people are used to typing something into the search bar and then clicking on the first link they see when results pop up, which doesn’t always answer their questions.

The solution is to scroll through pages of links before finding what you were looking for which is usually buried down around page four or five on Google’s search engine.

This won’t be very helpful if you need information quickly though since it could take quite a while until you get what you wanted.

Instead, try doing the following:

– Make sure that Google is set to show search results in order of most relevant and popular first (and not pages with ads). You can do this by clicking on “Search Tools” and then selecting whether or not you want them to be ordered by date/relevance etc. 

– Use quotes around your keywords if it isn’t already automatically done when typing something into the search bar.

They’ll make it easier to find what you’re looking for since more often than not there’s usually at least two or three different ways a topic could be phrased which might give slightly different results. This will narrow your results down by limiting them to pages/posts that have exactly what you typed into their content.

The Takeaway

There are several things you can do while traveling with Google, but these were just a few of the most useful tips out there. Remember to always use Google in a smart way so you’ll have access to only the best and most relevant information for your needs.
