There are several tips and tricks for using GMX Search which will facilitate your search and improve your search results.
You can narrow down your search by using so-called Boolean operators, which you type directly into the search field. The most important operators are listed down below:
|AND-search||Connect individual search terms with the operator AND. Only if a website contains all terms, will it be listed in the search results.||You are looking for a hotel in Berlin.||Hotel AND Berlin|
|OR-search||Connect individual search terms with the operator OR. Only if a website contains at least one of the terms, will it be listed in the search results.||You are looking for an apartment or a hotel in Berlin.||Berlin (Apartment OR Hotel)|
|NOT-search||Substract the terms you wish to be excluded from the search by adding a minus sign in front of them. Only if a website does not contain the terms, will it be listed in the search results.||You are looking for a hotel in Berlin but do not want to stay in a motel.||Berlin Hotel –Motel|
|Phrase-search||If you are not looking for a single term but rather a phrase, you might want to put it in quotation marks. This way, only results matching exactly your phrase will be mentioned.||You are looinkg for the originator of a famous phrase.||„To be or not to be“|
|search inside a website||If you are looking for a term on a specific website, add the operator site after your search term, followed by the URL of the website. This way, only results on this specific website will be listed.||You are looking for a specific DSL tariff by 1&1.||DSL tariff site:1und1.de (Important: No space between between „site:“ and the desired domain)|
