How the search works

Post by marie567 » Sun Nov 11, 2018 1:51 pm

I'm trying to search for the words "money market" fund in the investing forum. The search results says there are too many common words to give any results. I don't know if the search is looking for each word separately or the term money market. Thoughts on how to search for this?

Try plugging the words "money market fund" into the Google search window at the top left hand corner of the Bogleheads site when you first log on. It should bring up numerous threads.

The forum's built-in search engine (the gear icon in the top-right corner of the page) is not the greatest.

Instead use the Google search engine and put "money market fund" in quotes.

Here's the results: "money market fund" site:bogleheads.org - Google Search

Under the search box are options. Select Tools, then a time frame. Also, you can select "verbatim" - I think putting the search terms in quotes does just that.
