Default Specific searches?

Is there a way to search a specific topic? As an example, if I wanted to search for threads about the smaller diameter steering wheels, If I enter steering wheel, I get results for "wheel" "steering" and so on. So every post about someone looking at what wheels they want, or power steering install etc comes up.

I know some search engines can be made specific by putting in your search topic in quotes. It does not seem to make a difference on this site.

Search criteria is critical some times. If you word your search more specifically you may find what you are looking for. I found threads on smaller steering wheels by typing in: Danchuk smaller steering wheel. The search brought up threads posted by members on smaller steering wheels.

I've had the quotes work on each end of the search subject work fine here. If searching without them for something like steering and wheel every single post with steering, and, wheel comes up, which is frustrating. Using "steering wheel" with the quotes should work just fine.

One tip though, go to the Interiors Questions and Answers forum and use the 'search this forum' button to enter the steering wheel question (with the quotes). A buncha stuff on that pops up.

Put "smaller diameter steering wheel, trifive" in Google. No quotes needed.

Thanks guys. Wonder why the search engine on the site cannot work as well as that Google thing.

I will remember that. It works pretty well.

Be thankful. The search on this site works much better than many other sites. I always use the "advanced search" option and try to be fairly specific with my entries. Rarely need a google search as suggested.

I found that you donít even have to put Trifive.com on the google search. Whatever topic you are searching, the Trifive.com forums usually are at the top of the google pages anyway.

That's because you use trifive.com a lot. Big Blue (Google) is watching you.
It used to be just "IBM" (Big Blue) was watching you, now it's everybody.
