ITI220 Fall Semester September 19, 2019 Sean White Vanity Search Part 4: 1.) To conduct the “Vanity Search,” I used Google and Bing.com as search engines. 2.) Based on my interpretation, my name, Sean White, is extremely common and generic. I knew this prior to this assignment due to the immense amount of people that I have met in my life with either the last name “White” and/or the first name “Sean,” which can be spelt a multitude of different ways. This assumption was supported when I conducted the vanity search because I was not able to find search results about me personally until I had begun using Boolean operators. For example, my in order to slim down the search results, I typed “Sean White AND North Brunswick,” because I am from North Brunswick Township and my name is Sean White. With this minor adjustment, I was able to slim down the results from 900,000,000 to 8.2 million, with the first 6 results being hits about me and my North Brunswick High School athletic career.
