The website search engine works by scanning the entire site to locate pages which have exact matches for all of the words entered in your query above. If that fails, it then tries to locate pages which contain any words in your query. If that happens, a short message is displayed at the top of the search results indicating this has been done.

In addition, there are several ways to modify the above default search behavior.

+ and - qualifiers
If you prepend a word with +, that word is required to be on the page.
If you prepend a word with -, that word is required to not be on the page.
Examples: +always -never

* wildcard
If a query word (or group of letters) ends with a *, all words starting with
those letters will match.
Examples: Ok* will produce Oktoberfest, and Grafen* will produce

? wildcard
If a query word contains a ?, any character will match that position.
Examples: M?S will produce MOS, and NA?? will produce NATO.

All of these techniques can be combined: +alway* -ne??r*

These tips can also be used with most other Internet search engines to make searching far more easier and productive.
