Better search: Tip 2 - Drop the quotes

Better search: Tip 2 - Drop the quotes

We've recently updated our search algorithms, so you're going to get fewer tender results when you search, but those results will be more accurate. That's good news, until you get the dreaded "no results" page.

So here’s a tip on how to broaden your search.

If you searched for a word or a couple of words that brought up no results, there are a couple of things you can do, firstly if you used quotes around a search term remove them. Our search is strict, so if you enter the search term...

"PR and media"'ll get results that mention precisely that term. However, if you search for

PR media'll get results for anything that mentions both words in the document. This is useful if the documents you're trying to find might include a range of terms, so if a document includes the words 'PR with media monitoring' it won't be found by the first search but will be found by the second search.

If you’d like help with search, just start a chat with us and we’ll help you to find what you need.
