Advanced Search

Matching "ALL words" (recommended) will show results that include EVERY word entered in the search box. Matching "ANY words" will show results that contain ANY of the words entered.

At this time, searching the "ENTIRE SITE location" is the same as searching the "[ ALL ] location."

Tip: Instead of using the plural form of your word, add an asterisk * to the end to allow for singular or plural. (see more tips below)

Example: Try duck* to find duck, ducks, ducky, duckys, or duckies.

Simple Tips for More Exact Searches:

Searches are case insensitive. Searching for "Fur" will match the lowercase "fur" and uppercase "FUR".

Use "double quotation marks" around exact phrases.

Plural vs Singular:

Typing the plural version of a primary search word could show different results than using the singular version of the word. Try using the wild card (*) feature (read below) at the end of the word, in place of a possible "s" or sometimes it might be better to try both words (in separate searches).

Including or excluding words:

To make sure that a specific word is always included in your search topic, place the plus (+) symbol before the key word in the search box. To make sure that a specific word is always excluded from your search topic, place a minus (-) sign before the keyword in the search box. (You can also use the word "not" (without quotes) instead of the minus sign.)

Example 1: To find recipes for cookies with oatmeal but without raisins, try
"recipe cookie +oatmeal -raisin"
(without quotes).

Example 2: To find red latex balloons (no mylar balloons), try
"balloon* +red -mylar"
(without quotes).

Expand your search using wildcards (*):

By typing an * within a keyword, you can match up to four letters.

Example 1: Try wish* to find wish, wishes, or wishful.

Example 2: Try duck* to find duck, ducks, ducky, duckys, or duckies.

Fancy Features for Typical Searches:

You can be more specific and search only the text, or only the title, in each web page.

Finds pages that contain the specified text in the body of the document. By way of comparison, searches without the "text:" attribute will scan the URL, title, links, and META tags as well as the document body.

Finds pages that contain the specified word or phrase in the page title (which appears in the title bar of most browsers). The search title:Elvis would find pages with Elvis in the title.

Example #1: You want to find only documents with titles containing the words red and balloon(s).

Enter one of the following lines into the search box. Notice that a space after the colon is not required, and that we used the asterisk (*) wildcard at the end of the word "balloon" in order to catch both the singular and plural versions of that word:

title:red title:balloon*
title:balloon* title:red
