When I started diving into search, I found there is A LOT of useful things to know about how to leverage that little search box. While the typical user only uses 1.2 words and rarely if ever uses boolean search queries, there are a number of things including a powerful new Keyword Query Language that have been added to beef up that little search box. I’ve been doing a number of search sessions and have started gathering that knowledge into a series of Infographics. This is the first.
You can download my PowerPoint deck on the topic of Power User Search in SharePoint, but I’ve tried to consolidate the BEST Of POWER QUERIES in this single little Infographic. Feel free to Share this Infographic and even use it in your blogs. I acknowledge that much of it is buried in TechNet Articles, SharePoint Search Help pages, but this dandy little one pager can be laminated and used in your search brown bags. The Last Modified Search by date was something I had to reverse engineer by URL unencoding and piecing it back together. I’ve been working on getting this info in a single page for over a month. I hope you LOVE It!
I am working on a series of Infographics on the topic of Enterprise Search… stay tuned to this blog!
