This is a simple search egine: it is NOT sensitive to case or diacritic characters (such as accented characters). EXEMPLE: when you want to search for Eläkeläiset, just type elakelaiset.
if you want to search for a PHRASE (several consecutive words) like in a title, use quotation marks around the phrase. EXEMPLE: when you want to search for the title "Easy Project", but do not want to find all individual instances of easy and all individual instances of project, type: "Easy Project" including the quotation marks.

When you get the search results page, clicking on the header link will bring you to the page that contains what you were searching for, but that page itself will not automatically jump to the exact line that contains what you were searching for! Use your browser's built-in find function to search for your keywords on that very page.
If you can't find what you're lookin' for, even when you're pretty sure that it must be listed, here are some Search Tips provided by Atomz (the company that runs this the free search function)

  1. Check the spelling: although this search engine is supposed to do "sound-alike" matching, it's not perfect, especially not with odd and foreign language titles, so it is always best to spell the search terms correctly. Also, try variations: if Mo Plen doesn't give a result, try Mo-Plen, or Mo'Plen or Plen... use your imagination.
  2. Use multiple words when performing your search. More words for a search will return more refined results than a search from a single word.
  3. Use similar words: the more similar words you use in a search, the more relevant results will be to the words that you are searching for.
  4. Use Boolean plus (+) or minus (-) operators: Precede a search term or phrase with a plus (+) sign to indicate it must appear in a search result. Precede a search term with a minus (-) sign to indicate an undesirable search term or phrase that must not appear in a search result. For example, searching for +"Martin Denny" -Best will return results that are about Martin Denny, but not about "Best of " Martin Denny CDs.

Finally, Atomz indexes my site only once a week, on Sunday 17:00 hours (5 pm) Central European Time, which is between 8 to 10 am in different parts of the US. This means that if I upload or change something on Monday, these changes will not appear in your search results until the following Sunday. So, if you can't find something, just try again a week later.
