- The case of letters doesn't matter
All searches are case insensitive. This means you don't have to
know whether a word is capitalized or not, or whether it is a
title in all caps. For example, searching for "help" will match
both "help" and "Help".
- Each word is treated as a prefix
A word on a Web page will match your search string if it begins
with the same letters. Thus, "bread" matches "bread", "breads",
"breaded", "breading", and "breadth". (If you check the "match
exact words only" checkbox, then the whole word must match your
string--that is, "bread" will only match "bread".)
- Words in a phrase must be near one another
When you enter more than one word to search for, Web pages will
be selected only if all the words you enter appear close to one
another, typically in the same sentence or paragraph. If you
surround the phrase with quotes ("..."), then it will only match
pages where the words are next to one another.
- The order of words in a phrase doesn't matter
If you enter more than one word, they will match a Web page if
the same words appear near one another in any order. For
example, "Mount Everest" will match "Mount Everest", "Everest
Mountain", and "that awesome mountain, the great Everest".
- Common words are ignored
Some words appear so commonly on website pages that
Search.Blossom ignores them.
