Solo Tip Tuesday: Acronym Finder Explains Abbreviations

by Reba Nance on March 19, 2013

The other day I was reading an article titled “10 Simple Things SMB Websites Need to Fix before SEO.” I knew SEO meant search engine optimization, but I wasn’t sure about SMB. I quickly pulled up one of my favorite websites—Acronym Finder.

I typed SMB in the box at the top-middle of the page and selected find. Scrolling down the page, I saw my search returned 59 results. “Small and Medium Business” was the second one listed, between “Server Message Block” and “Seven-Mile Beach (Cayman Islands).”

Acronym Finder has been around since 1996 and has more than 750,000 human-edited definitions for acronyms and abbreviations. It adds more than 5,000 new acronym definitions to its database each month. Each term is reviewed for accuracy, verified from multiple sources, categorized, and edited by an experienced human editor.

The next time you come across an acronym or abbreviation you don’t know, run it through Acronym Finder. I’m certain you’ll find what you’re looking for!

You can see this tip and others, on topics ranging from Outlook and Word help to App reviews and online tools, all here.
