How can I search for more specific hits in Monitor Hits?

You can specify your search in your own archive by using search operators. Here are the most common used for searching in Monitor Hits:

Sometimes a word has different endings. To ensure you search for all endings you can use a star at the end of it. E.g. apple*

If you wish to search for a sentence, a name, or something else that is in a string of words, you should use quotation marks. E.g. “red apple*”

If you use OR between search words, you can search for different things or alternatives at the same time. E.g. “red apple” OR banana* OR kiwi

If you use AND you can search for the hits where different search words have to appear in the same hit. E.g. organic AND fruit*

You can use ANDNOT to exclude certain words. If your search contains more words it should be wrapped in parentheses E.g. (organic AND fruit) ANDNOT oranges

You can also search in only headlines or intros. E.g. headlines:fruit* OR intros:(banana* OR apple)
