I agree with Tiffany; with so many variables (climate conditions, potting medium, size of plant etc.) it's impossible to tell someone how often they should water their plants. I don't know Mr. Google ... but watering several times a week sounds really extreme, unless of course the plants are growing in the desert!
Many years ago (late 1960's, early 70's) I couldn't seem to keep any container plant alive for very long because I used a very heavy, water retaining potting soil and also, for some reason I thought I needed to water them two or three times a week ... so I literally drowned every plant I tried to grow.
Nowadays, I go three or four weeks between watering; I take my indoor plants out to the back deck and use a garden hose to thoroughly soak them, as well as all of the many container plants that reside on my screened porch and on two outside decks. The water runs through the pots very quickly so I water, water, water for awhile to be sure to thoroughly soak the soil. I don't have a schedule for watering plants (the older I get the shorter my attention span seems to be) so the plants get watered when I think about it or when I notice that they appear to be screaming for a drink. I live in Florida and grow everything in a very chunky, fast draining potting medium so I'm sure that all the extra moisture in the air helps somewhat ... it seems to be what my plants have become accustomed to and they seem to thrive.
I'd say you should just take your time and find out what works best for your growing conditions.
