Use multiple words
Use multiple words when performing your search. The
search results will return more refined results from several words than from a single
word. For example, typing
risk reduction will yield more relevant results than typing only
risk. (Keep in mind, relevant results are returned even if
they don't contain all query terms.)
Use similar words
The more similar words you use in a search, the
more relevant results you will get back.
Use appropriate capitalization
Capitalize proper nouns. Lowercase words will match
any case. For example, typing
search will return all documents containing the words
search, Search, and
SEARCH. However, typing
Search will only search for pages about the Atomz.com Search
Use quotation marks
Use quotation marks to find words which must appear
adjacent to each other, for example,
"father's grief." Otherwise, the search results will include the word
father's, and the word
grief, but not necessarily in that order. The words may appear
anywhere, and in any order, within the document.
Use plus (+) or minus (-)
Use a plus sign when your search term or phrase
must appear in the search results. Use a minus sign to indicate undesirable
plus sign tells the search engine that a certain word or phrase is required in the search
results, and a minus sign indicates that a word or phrase must be absent in the search
Note: A phrase must be contained within quotation marks. Leave no spaces between the plus
or minus sign and the term.
Use field searches
Field searches allow you to create specific for
words that appear in a specific part of a document. A field search can be performed on
body text (body:), title text (title:), alt text (alt:), meta description
key words (keys:) or URL (url:). The field name should be in lowercase and immediately
followed by a colon. There should be no spaces between the colon and the search term.
Note: The field searches can only be followed by a word or phrase. Phrases must be
contained within quotation marks.
