To get better search results

 

CHECK SPELLING

Make sure your search terms are spelled correctly.

 

USE MULTIPLE WORDS

Multiple-word queries will return more specific results. For example Holy City will return more relevant results than just City.

 

USE SIMILAR WORDS

The more similar words you use in a search, the more relevant your results will be. Example: road street avenue.

 

USE THE ASTERISK * AS A WILDCARD CHARACTER

to expand the number of matches for a particular request.

 

 For example, searching for anoint*  (asterisk after the word) will find the words anoint and anointed.

 

Searching for *her* (asterisks before and after the word) would find the words here, whether, together gathering, and any other word that contains the letters her.

 

Use Quotation Marks

 

To find words that must appear next to each other; for example, "Holy City" without quotes, the search results will include all listings with the words Holy or City.

 

More Search Secrets

 

CAPITALIZATION CAN MATTER

Lowercase words will match any case.

 

For example, gift will return all listings containing the words gift, Gift, and GIFT. Typing Gift, however, (with a capital G) will instruct the search engine to look only for the capitalized word.

 

Use Plus (+) or Minus (+)

 

You can 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: To use this hint, the phrase must be contained within quotation marks. Leave no spaces between

 

The plus or minus sign and the term. Example: +"ride" -"donkey" will find listings that include the word ride but do not include the word donkey.
