Search results.

It is apparent to me from moderating several tech boards (not just this one), in some cases for almost four years now, that many people just don't know how to get good search results for their problems/questions/and miscellaneous others.

I'm wondering if it might be worthwhile to add a forum for "Search Queries That Work" (or some similar title). My hope would be if it was added that the initial posts would include many tips on how to get the best results from the variety of popular engines that are out there. Even with Google, sometimes, I'll have to go check their advanced search options for alternate ideas.

It would also be a great way for folks to say "I'm trying to search for the price of tea in china (as an example), but not having any results".

Just thought I'd through that one out there for consideration. I know from personal experience that just with an intermediate level of understanding how to search and how to select the keywords you search for that can save people tons of time...

Give it some thought.
