Refine web searches

You can use symbols or words in your search to make your search results more precise.

  • Search It On The Go Search usually ignores punctuation that isn't part of a search operator.
  • Don’t put spaces between the symbol or word and your search term. A search for site:nytimes.com will work, but site: nytimes.com won't.
