How can I improve my Google search skills?

How can I get better at using Google search?

The extraordinary popularity of Google was achieved via de-skilling search. People who aren’t very good at searching – which are almost everyone – may now get decent results without having to type in long, complicated queries. This was partially due to Google’s PageRank algorithm recognizing which pages were most important and successful, and partly due to users quickly leaving websites that didn’t provide what they wanted.
