Use field searches
Make sure your search terms are spelled correctly. The search engine will attempt to find words that sound similar your search terms, but it is always best to try to spell the search terms correctly.
Use multiple wordsback
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
our free servicewill yield more relevant results than typing only
service. (Keep in mind, relevant results are returned even if they don't contain all query terms.)
Use similar wordsback
The more similar words you use in a search, the more relevant results you will get back.
Use appropriate capitalizationback
Capitalize proper nouns. Lowercase words will match any case. For example, typing
searchwill return all documents containing the words
SEARCH. However, typing
Searchwill only search for pages about the Atomz.com Search service.
Use quotation marksback
Use quotation marks to find words which must appear adjacent to each other, for example,
"our pledge to you."Otherwise, the search results will include the word
to, and the word
you, but not necessarily in that order. The words may appear anywhere, and in any order, within the document.
Use plus (+) or minus (-)back
Use a plus sign when your search term or phrase must appear in the search results. Use a minus sign to indicate undesirable term(s). The 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 results.
Note: A phrase must be contained within quotation marks. Leave no spaces between the plus or minus sign and the term.
Use field searchesback
Field searches allow you to create specific searches 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 (desc:), meta 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.
Wildcard searches can expand the number of matches for a particular request. The
*character is used as the wildcard character.
For instance, searching for
wh*will find the words
whether, and any other word that starts with
*her*will find the words
gathering, and any other word that contains
heranywhere in the word.
Wildcards may be combined with the standard plus (+) and minus (-) modifiers, quotes for phrases, as well as the field search specifiers.
+wh* -se*chwill find all pages which have a word that starts with
whand which does not contain a word that starts with
seand ends with
"wh* are"will find the phrases
why are, etc.
