Internet Hunts: Internet Treasure Hunts & Internet Scavenger Hunts

Looking for an Internet Hunt? Doing an online treasure hunt is a great way to learn about searching the net and get Internet research practice. Here are a dozen Internet Hunts, varying in difficulty level from beginner to extremely challenging. These are some of the many Internet Hunts that appeared in Pam's column over eight years. These online hunts were one of the most popular features of the column and beginners, particularly, found them a fun learning experience.

The rules are simple. There are ten questions in each Hunt. They vary in difficulty on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is easiest and 10 is hardest. You may use any search tool you like in order to find the correct answer. Please don't send your completed hunts to me, or write me for the correct answers.

Just in case you get really frustrated, the correct answers are provided with each Hunt. However, please be aware that the answers provided here were written several years ago. Some of the strategies suggested may no longer be valid because of the ongoing evolution of search engines and their syntax.
