Search Engine Syntax



6:10 pm on May 18, 2001 (gmt 0)

Does any out there understand search engines syntax's more. I am having trouble getting or finding out about all the new search engine syntax's when they use them. I need them to track and count my traffic properly.

Do you mean the query URL that is returned as a referrer? If so, you can get it by going to the search engine in questions, do a query and copy the URL, you can usually figure out all of the fields, especially the search query field since it will have your search terms in it.

Yes thats what I am doing now. I would just like to know of them without having to do that.

Go to this site: [statslab.cam.ac.uk...] and download the file under "SEARCHENGINE commands". It has a pretty complete list of search engines and their search terms.
