    Keywords search

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if one wants to find posts which contain both words "A" and "B" one should list the keywords as A +B (or +A +B.)
    When I search for A + B the search results lists also posts that contain just A.
    Please check and advise.

    Re: Keywords search

    Very common words are ignored. For example the query "check +pool" ignores the word pool so it returns all listings with check in them. There will be a little message in upper left telling you what terms were used for the search when the results are displayed.

    For example, try searching for fiesta +salt and you get:

    fiesta +salt ignored: salt

    And the posts contain only the word fiesta.

    It can be frustrating because words like pump, chlorine, pool etc. are ignored when searching.

    If that's not what's happening, post your query and I'll try it as well.

    Re: Keywords search

    Has someone fixed something after I posted?
    This is strange.
    Before the original post I searched for Liquidator +easy.
    I had gotten back some results that contained the keyword "Liquidator" only and
    some with both "Liquidator" and "easy".

    I repeated the search just now, and lo and behold - the search results contain both keywords!

    Re: Keywords search

    If you use the search link at the top of the page, you'll find you have option as to how and what to search. Try playing around with those.

    Also, at the bottom of every page you will find a site specific google search tool that is getting better each day. After the upgrade, the urls changed so it's taken awhile for the site to get fully indexed again, but I think you'll find it gives good results now.

    You can use either one - just trying to provide options.

    Re: Keywords search

    I did a search for Liquidator +WS, and although it came back with "WS ignored"
    I got many search results which contained both "Liquidator" and "WS" highlighted in yellow.
    The site google search got only five results. I understand the indexing takes time.
