Custom Search

By default the search engine tries to locate pages which have exact matches for all of the words entered in your search query. If that fails, it then tries to locate pages which contain any words in your search query. If that happens a short message is displayed at the top of the search results indicating this has been done.

Most search engines offer several ways to modify the default search behaviour by using qualifiers and/or general web settings. Boolan search is common to many search engines.

1. phrase search
The search engine supports three types of phrase search.
  • To match an exact phrase, use quotes around the phrase
    Example: "free search engine"
     
  • To match a near (within a couple of words) phrase, use square brackets [around the words]
    Example: [free search engine]
     
  • To match a far (within several words) phrase, use braces { around the words }
    Example: {free search engine}
2. + and - qualifiers
If you prepend a word with + that word is required to be on the page. If you prepend a word with - that word is required to not be on the page.
Example: +always -never
 
3. * wildcard
If a query word ends with a * all words on a page which start the same way as that query word will match.
Example: gift*
 
4. ? wildcard
If a query word contains a ? any character will match that position.
Example: b?g
 
5. boolean search
You can use the following boolean operators in your search: AND, OR, NOT. These operators MUST be in capital letters.
Example: (contact AND us) OR (about AND us)
All of these techniques can be combined: +alway* -ne??r*
