Search tips

If you enter two or more words in the search field, the search results will include matches for any of those words.

To optimise the search results, you can use the following operators in the search field:

  • Surround a phrase with double quotes (") to search for the whole phrase.
  • Prefix a word with + if all search results must include the word.
  • Prefix a word with - if the search results must not include the word.

Examples:

  • one two
    Search for either one or two.
  • "one two"
    Search for the whole phrase "one two" rather than the individual words one or two.
  • +one two
    All search results must include one, and will rank higher if they also contain two.
  • +one -two
    All search results must include one, but none will include two.
