    Structuring sentences

    Please check if this is grammatically correct and restructure it better.
    I have read the first five pages of google search results of all the keywords of the topic.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I understand what it means but it's a little awkward. I would probably re-order it to something like "I Googled all the keywords relating to the topic and I have read the first five pages of results".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Structuring sentences

    Thankyou.
    That looks little verbose. Would you please rephrase it to a shorter sentence.
    And, was the original sentence grammatically incorrect?
    Also please answer the thread titled 'Mixed Doubts'.

    I've read the first five pages of the Google results for the topic keywords.

    There you go. That's shorter. I don't like it as much though. You specifically asked us to "restructure it better". In my opinion, I did.

    The original wasn't grammatically incorrect. I would have said so if it was. I said it was awkward and I still think so.

    Please don't try to direct us towards other posts. We get to posts when we get to them.

    Re: Structuring sentences

    Thank you. How do I structure sentences better? I do permutations and combinations for long sentences before finalising on one. That's taking lot of time while writing answers. How do I improve upon this?
