The following examples demonstrate some search strings that use boolean operators:
- design community
Find rows that contain at least one of the two words.
- +design +community
Find rows that contain both words.
- +design community
Find rows that contain the word “design”, but rank rows higher if they also contain “community”.
- +design -community
Find rows that contain the word “design” but not “community”.
- +design ~community
Find rows that contain the word “design”, but if the row also contains the word “community”, rate it lower than if row does not.
- +design +(>community <decisions)
Find rows that contain the words “design” and “community”, or “design” and “decisions” (in any order), but rank “design community” higher than “design decisions”
Find rows that contain words such as “design”, “designs”, “designing”, or “designer”.
- "some words"
Find rows that contain the exact phrase “some words” (for example, rows that contain “some words of wisdom” but not “some noise words”). Note that the " characters that enclose the phrase are operator characters that delimit the phrase. They are not the quotation marks that enclose the search string itself.
