Many of the news articles in our database have long since been scrubbed from the net. Now this excellent research tool is even better...
NEW! 3-letter words are now fully searchable, and results for standard searches are returned based on relevance. In short, the Sott SuperSearch will help you find what you're looking for faster than ever!Standard usage:
Just type in the word or phrase you're looking for!
SuperSearch will by default look for a match of your search term in the article Title, Author, and Summary fields.
SuperSearch will first show articles with all the words, and also include articles that contain only some of the words you entered.
If you include double quotes around your search term, SuperSearch will only show articles with all the words you typed in.
You can now also search for terms like "CIA" and "UFO" without a problem!
Most of the time, a standard search will give you the articles you need.
For Customized Search Results:
- Use the special search terms (like "intitle:") to limit your searches
- Put a + before each word you are searching for
intitle: -- searches in title of article onlyYou may also search for articles that have different text in different fields by adding the word "AND" to your search. For example, if you want to search for an article that has the word "Bush" in the main text of the article and the word "evil" in the comment field of the article, just type:
inauthor: -- searches in author field only
insource: -- searches in source field only
insummary: -- searches in summary field only
intext: -- searches in main text field only
incomment: -- searches in comment field only
intext: Bush AND incomment: evil
- The AND must be capitalized!
- A search on multiple fields like the above example will be automatically "optimized" to minimize the performance impact on the database. As such, you may not obtain the search results you expect due to this optimization. Try your search first with only one field!
intitle: +Bush +RiceThis finds all articles that have "Bush" and "Rice" in the title.
You can also exclude certain words by using a - (minus sign) as follows:
insummary: +Bush +Neocons -RiceThe above search string will find all articles with the words "Bush" and "Neocons", but without the word "Rice in the summary field".
If you want to search for a specific phrase, simply place the phrase within quotes:
intitle: "Bush fires Rice"Or:
inauthor: Knight-Jadczyk AND incomment: "take that to the bank"Happy Searching!
