NEAR Searches

Sometimes you're not just interested in finding multiple keywords that are mentioned in the same document. You want to be able to specify that they appear in close proximity to one another. That's what NEAR searching is all about.

AltaVista is one of the few search engines that offers NEAR searching. And it's only available as part of the Advanced and Power Search capabilities, not on the main AltaVista search form. The format is: Constitution NEAR "Electoral College".
