Searching with Netscape Search

Even though the search tools available to you with Netscape Search are quite limited, you can get very good results as long as you keep a few general concepts in mind:

  • Netscape Search is designed to help you find what it considers to be the best information related to your search, so it favors Web sites from its Smart Browsing database and the Open Directory Project over those from the spider-created Google database.

  • You won't even be shown Web pages from Google if matches are found in these other sources.

  • You can increase the likelihood of finding Web sites in Netscape Search's non-Google sources by limiting the number of words in your query and avoiding the use of plus signs (+).

  • Conversely, you can virtually assure that your results will come from Google by using three or more unique keywords and putting plus signs in front of each of them.
