How to Search with precision - GUIDE !!!


Hi,

So letīs use as example, an user is looking for information about a Nokia 6610 not powering on.

So as usual, user points to Search button on top menu of the forum and input "6610 no power on"


Ok this is the most fast way, but not the best one.
Look at the results:


So what user should do is this, click on "SEARCH" and then on "ADVANCED SEARCH".


Then enter the keywords that user wanna search for, and "Search Titles Only".


And we will get a much more accurate results.


This is the easier and better way to get good results, BUT if wanna even better results, then give more information about your search, for example, if the question is about Nokia 6610, try to look just inside the Nokia foruns. Can do this in the Advanced search as well. And some other good options are available to reduce user of wasting time and reading posts that doesnīt really interest to your search point.

Hope this helps a bit more our users.

PS: Later I might add some information about some more "search" options and functions.

Thanks

Thumbs up Is this opinion practicable????

I have sugesion here.

The forum should now be rectified from useless posts. Though a very difficult task but i think administrators of this forum can do that. In this way not only precious space of forum will be saved but also search for specific problems will become easy..

@administrator

Will u do that for the sake of easness of solving problems in a quick way???

Well some measures were taken to avoid useless posts... like the 20 character limit, and some others.

But is a tought job as u say.

We are always ready to ear some opinion and improvements.

Thanks

If I write into search window "not in charge" appear:

The search term you specified ("not*in*charge") is under the minimum word length (2) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.

If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific.


" is not accepted from the board?
Thanks in advance.

not in charge = "not" 3 chars / "in" 2 chars / "charge" 6 chars

I guess, is limited to a minimum of 3 chars.

Enter "not charging" instead

the result it's the same....

The search term you specified ("not*charge") is under the minimum word length (2) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.

If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific.


the same thing if I search: "6120 classic"

The search term you specified ("6120*classic") is under the minimum word length (2) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.

If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific.
