How to search on: word.com-1

Postby mrwul » Wed Jul 24, 2019 10:28 pm

I would like to find all instances with : "word.com-1"
Either with or without quotes I get all word.com and probably somewhere between the masses of hits there will also be word.com-1
However, I want ONLY word.com-1


Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Try:

"word com 1"
MK
X1 Search 8.6.1 - Build 6003fa (64-bit)
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Windows 10 Home 32-bit
No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

Ah, right, thanks a lot Kenward!
It did work.
Probably this can be found / documented somewhere, but this a bit unexpected for me. Personally I expected the search would go the Google way, between quotes.

Anyway, thanks again!

Glad it worked.

The trick is to realise that all punctuation and various odd character get interpreted as spaces.

The problem with "-" is that some search engines interpret it as "minus" (or not).

So they will see

word.com-1

as "word.com" where there is no "1" present.
