Answers could provide workflows, tips, tricks, trigger-action patterns, things-to-avoid, useful and/or unknown Google Scholar features -- whatever helps someone get up to speed as a power user.

Not specifically about Google Scholar, but on topic for how to do research effectively is Lukeprog's guide, Scholarship: How to Do It Efficiently.
