Search parameters[edit] Boolean searches and other custom searches can provide links that are not available in default searches. Simply using quotation marks in searches (e.g. "Search topic") can significantly narrow search results, whereby only results that have the entire term are generated. Customizing Google searches using the main Google page by simply adding "news" or "news," (both without quotation marks) and then the search term in quotation marks often provides more results than using the Google News link in the find sources template. Here's an example: news, "Search topic". It's often necessary to view several pages after the first page of search results when using this technique. Google Advanced Search and other such advanced searches in various search engines can help to pinpoint coverage about topics. To narrow searches to specific sites, here's something that works in Google searches (be sure to include the topic in quotation marks): "Search topic" site:www.siteexample.com This generates results only from the specified site. To search within a top-level domain or generic top-level domain, a "site" parameter can be added. For example: "Search topic" site:*.ro lists websites under the .ro generic top-level domain. Omitting results by adding a minus (-) sign and url addresses for unwanted sites can result in higher-relevance hits (or at least higher relevance hits per Wikipedia's notability standards, to omit sites that aren't valid for demonstrating topic notability) – e.g. "Search topic" -siteexample.com.


More advanced search options[edit] Reliable Sources Search Engine[edit] Reliable Sources Search Engine – a general purpose search engine that helps limit search results to those published by reliable sources. Search for template[edit] The {{Search for}} template Advanced search for:  "Search topic" In books/documents  Google Books  · Questia Internet Archive  · WorldCat In the news  Google News: recent  · archives Questia  · New York Times Los Angeles Times: archives  · historic Wall St Journal  · Financial Times BBC News  · The Age  · The Hindu  · News Limited Fairfax Media In academic/legal journals  and reference works  Google Scholar: academic  · legal Microsoft Academic: new  · original Oxford Reference  · JSTOR PUBMED Central  · Questia HighBeam World Wide Web pages  Google  · Bing Images (free)  Google  · Flickr {{Search for}} template – (listed at the right of this page) provides advanced, extensive search options that are not available in the standard Find sources template. {{Search for expanded}} – Expanded version of the Search for template Indian newspapers searches[edit] Indian Newspapers Search Engine (for all Indian languages) – can provide results that do not show up in Google searches, because Google sometimes does not index some Indian news websites. Additional Indian news search options are listed below. For more information, see WP:INDAFD. Indian English Newspaper Custom Search Engine Indian English Newspapers Search (Google account required) Wikiproject custom search engines[edit] Some Wikiprojects have their own custom Google search, to sort through websites they have agreed to be reliable sources. This often shows ample results that a Google news archive search does not. See examples below. Reliable Sources for Video Games – This Google Custom Search is used by WikiProject Video games.
