I just read this nice round up [websearch.about.com] from About Web Search Guide Jennifer Laycock on ATW's advanced features.

She gives good examples of how and why you should use the different features offered by ATW. IMO worth a read for those into advanced searching.

Personally I often use the advanced features to dig out those gems you can't pick up elsewhere.

What about you? Ever tried the ATW Advanced Search? Since Jennifer seems to have forgotten to add the prober link, go here [alltheweb.com] to check it out ;)

Looks like a very comprehensive run down on all the features! Next time I'm really digging for something, I'll definitely have another read through the article. Well done.

Nice overview. There is however some stuff missing, for example the boolean operators: and, or, andnot and rank.

Then there are some finer distinctions to the site: command.

And what about the Url Investigator? While not an advanced search feature in the strict sense it certainly is the most spectacular extra feature on ATW.

>And what about the Url Investigator

Good point heini! That's a really really nice feature - espcially for guys like us that like to know how many pages ATW has indexed, linkpop, ownership etc.

That Jenn-girl should come over here and spread some of that wisdom too ;)

I keep banging the drum about ATW, I really rate it and it brings me results ... perhaps that's why :)

Well, Jennifer is a member here, and it is a good overview.
There have however been numerous praises and descriptions of ATW's advanced search features, resourceshelf has diligently kept track of them, as have many other publications.
We have here on the board been discussing each of them. I once wrote an overview myself but then decided it would be a bit pointless to post it here, since the help pages at ATW describe the features including examples of usage very well.

sick copy of G's advanced features. They fail to make a bid for something new to lure the loyal users of G. imitation at best :-(

Chndru, I suggest you take another look, perhaps when in better mood :)
The set of advanced options has been richer than Google's for years, and ATW has mostly been first in presenting users with those options.
