How can you make your search results better?
Sometimes you will need to search something which is more than just searching using keywords. Using keywords will bring you some few relevant results then fill your list with other completely irrelevant information. This happens mostly if you are using more than one keyword. However, there are techniques you can use to make your search more specific. These techniques include;
- Putting your keywords in speech quotes- this is very important, because the two keywords will not be split to bring you different results, the keywords will be considered as one word hence you will get only relevant results.
- Avoid using the word AND between the keywords in your search- when using keywords, you can avoid using the word AND between the keywords, just use the two keywords only. This is because this word means both of them so the result will contain just both terms with very irrelevant meaning.
- Do not use the word OR between the keywords- if you use this word between you keywords, the results will have one of the keywords or each keyword will appear separately. This is because the word OR is used to mean a choice between them.
- Avoid using the word NOT between the keywords- if you use it, it means that you are having a preference of the first keyword and disregarding the second keyword, and so the results you will get will be only containing the first keyword.
- Do not use a plus sign just before a keyword- this is because, the results will only return a keyword with the sign plus before it and disregard the other keyword.
- Do not use a minus sign just before a keyword- minus means subtraction hence the search results will not come with the word that had a minus sign behind it.
