Specific Internet Search Methodology

Specific Internet Search Methodology

This paper provides a description for a process of finding resources and information sources for a specific topic research. The selected topic is ”Main distribution channels for Israeli products to the Arab and Muslim world”.

This topic was a challenge since the issue is one that companies / countries will try not to disclose. Any detailed disclosure might endanger the business and have political consequences.

Additional problem was that no specific industry was selected. I have decided to perform a general internet search on the topic and then to select one industry – telecommunication – and get more information through direct contact with people in this industry.

1. Direct export to the Palestinian authority

I have started the internet search with a search string that included the full topic and then refined it and changed it to be more specific. The quality of results was very dependent on the search string....
