One Question - One EXACT Response


Before you search -- here, or anywhere on the Net -- please read this: it will help a lot!

Approach a search strategically--you'll get much better results. The more specific your search, the better matches you'll get. Here's how to avoid frustrating irrelevant hits:

Narrow Your Criteria
Let's say you're looking for an article on press releases. Let the search engine look for press AND release, or the joined phrase "press release"; that way you won't get any hits about pressing wine.

Check Synonyms
For that same search on press releases, try "news release" OR "press release"

Check Variations
Try both the single and plural, present and past tenses (try the singular first, as it will probably find the plurals also).

Check Spelling
If you type "pess" instead of "press," this page will be your only hit on my site!

My thanks to Jared Spool of User Interface Engineering for his clear and cogent thinking on this matter.

Happy Searching!
--Shel Horowitz, Frugal Marketing Webmaster
