Googling or search in general is a skill. There is a lot of contextual
knowledge that we use when composing a search query. One of the most
important  skills when entering a new discipline is learning the appropriate
jargon and using it drive your queries.

Search isn't generally a skill taught in schools. This is sad because it is
probably ur-skill of the 21st century.  But the only way to learn to search
is to do a lot of it. I do find it more common in the East to find
individuals in technical areas who haven't spent time running the thousands
of queries it takes to build up the skill
