Query Rules of Thumb

  • If you get too many junk or nonsense results, try:

    • Add some more words to your query.

    • Decrease the range of the Proximity control.

    • Change the Word Forms control to Exact.

    • Look at the Match Info and see why they are showing up.

    • Use the Exclusion Operator (-) to remove unwanted terms.

    • If you are searching for a phrase, hyphenate the words together.

  • If you don't get any results, or just too few:

    • Remove some more words to your query.

    • Examine your spelling.

    • Increase the scope of the Proximity control.

    • It just might not be there?
