Bing Query Language - some seriously geeked advance operators

 4:28 am on Jul 1, 2010 (gmt 0)

Bing just published (and publicized) an extensive list of Advance Operators. What a look into their search technology this offers! For example, here's a description of the advanced operator

norelax: Only allow search word, phrase or word: in the constraint. Bing implements relaxcount for a 5+ word query by default; that is, the fifth word in a query and subsequent appears do not necessarily appear in results.

Example: cry for you lyrics norelax:September

Remarks The effect of the syntax in this example is to specify that all returned results must contain september. In the absence of the norelax: operator, since there are 5 words in the query, Bing would augment with a relaxcount=+1, that could return documents that do not contain september.

Advanced Operator reference [msdn.microsoft.com]

That is one serious chunk of technical information - Happy Research.

The list needs an inurl: but otherwise all very useful.

Cool! Thanks for pointing this out!

I like the ip: operator:

Finds sites that are hosted by a specific IP address. The IP address must be a dotted quad address. Type the ip: keyword, followed by the IP address of the website.

Example: ip:

Prefix-matching is also possible, that is, ip:46 would return the site IP: if the latter is in the index.
