Search Engine Help


1. To search for multiple words and phrases, for best results use "+word1 +word2".  For example, if you want to search for a story about a pet cat, search for "+cat +pet" and it will bring up a list of stories that use the keywords "cat" and "pet".  You can also exclude terms using this method, so if you want a story about cats but which does not contain dogs, search for "+cat -dog".


2. Be specific.  If you search for the word "cat" alone, you will get all stories that use the word "cat" in the keywords or summaries, but also any that contain "cat" as part of a keyword or summary, including stories that use keywords like "communication" or "vacation".  If you want a story about cats, try searching for "+cat +animal" or "+cat +pet" for best results.


3. Check your spelling.  Our search engine will not correct spelling mistakes, so try, wherever possible to ensure you are spelling your search terms correctly.  We try to include both American and English spellings of words (e.g. color and colour) and we always use standard spellings (e.g. vampire rather than vampyre).
