Search Basics

Simply type one or more search terms (the words or phrase that best describe the information you want to find) into the search box and hit "Search".

In response, Google produces a results page: a list of web pages related to your search terms, with the most relevant page appearing first, then the next, and so on.

Tips to Maximize Effectiveness

Start with the obvious – if you're looking for general information on Seth, try "seth". (Searches are NOT case sensitive.)

But it's often advisable to use multiple search terms; if you're looking for Seth's info on inner senses, you'll do better with "inner senses seth" than with either inner senses or Seth by themselves.

Automatic "and" queries

By default, Google only returns pages that include all of your search terms. There is no need to include "and" between terms. Keep in mind that the order in which the terms are typed will affect the search results. To restrict a search further, just include more terms. For example, "seth inner senses empathic".

Automatic Exclusion of Common Words

Google ignores common words and characters such as "where" and "how", as well as certain single digits and single letters, because they tend to slow down your search without improving the results.

If a common word is essential, include it by putting a "+" sign in front of it. (Be sure to include a space before the "+" sign.)

Google now uses stemming technology. So it will search not only your search terms, but also for words that are similar to some or all of those terms.

Phrase Searches

Sometimes you only want results that include an exact phrase. In this case, simply put quotation marks around your search terms (e.g., "intent name exercise").

Phrase searches are particularly effective if you're searching for proper names ("Jane Roberts"), excerpts ("We are essence, the essence of Rose"), etc.

Negative Terms

If your search term has more than one meaning (bark, for example, could refer to trees or dogs) you can focus your search by putting a minus sign ("-") in front of words related to the meaning you want to avoid.

For example, here's how you'd find pages about tree barks, but not dogs barks: "tree bark -dog"

Note: when you include a negative term in your search, be sure to include a space before the minus sign.
