|Using more search terms may give better results|
Searching for antiretroviral (space) adverse (space) event will find all pages containing any one or more of these words, but pages containing all three words will be shown first in the results. Pages with these three words in the title, in meta tags, or adjacent to each other in the text, will be highest in the results.
|Using quotes forces exact phrase matches|
Searching for "weight gain" will result in pages having that exact phrase, but not, for example, "gain in weight".
|Using an asterisk (*) to include alternate endings for search terms in results|
Searching for antiretroviral* will find pages containing antiretroviral or antiretrovirals. This will also find pages with Antiretroviral and Antiretrovirals because searching is case-insensitive by default.
|If you want to make sure all of your search words appear in a document, use the "AND" operator ("AND" must be capitalized). |
Searching for treatment AND plan will find pages that include "treatment plan" as well as pages that include "plan for treatment". Searching for treat* AND plan* will also find "plans for treating", "treatment planning", and similar variations.
