    I checked it in/on/of/from/off/ Google.

    1. I checked it in Google.
    2. I checked it on Google.
    3. I checked it of Google.
    4. I checked it from Google.
    5. I checked it off Google.

    Hello teachers,
    Would you please tell me which one is correct?
    I searched it in the forum but couldn't find a thread related to my question.

    Many thanks in advance.

    You will see different prepositions used with things like websites as it's a new area of language. I think 1 & 2 are fine.

    Is the usage same as what you said if I use word Forum instead of Google?

    I mean I searched it on the forum.

    Does the word Forum only use preposition (on) like Google?

    I'd use on the forum, but in the forum does not sound wrong to me.
