Refresher Course: Keywords [Use them when you post and use them to search]
Latest Articles ^ | April 26, 2006 | taxrelief

Posted on 04/26/2006 7:35:49 AM PDT by TaxRelief

Keywords

A "Keyword" search is the best search engine option on FReerepublic.com. Newcomers to FR and longtime users frequently ask for help finding favorite threads or information on a specific topic. When properly "keyworded", an article can be easily retrieved using the "Keyword" search. Keyword searches can be bookmarked for future reference and to monitor current topics. Logged-in users can add keywords to new and existing threads.


Performing a "Keyword" search:

At the top of the latest articles page, there is a search form.

Use the pulldown menu to select "keyword". Type in the search criteria and press the search button.


A keyword search will be only as good as the keywords posted with the article. FR users define the keywords for each article. The "Posting new thread" form has a space for adding "Keywords".

Including keywords in a new article:





Adding Keywords to existing threads

Keywords can be added to existing threads by clicking on "Click to add keyword" at the end of the current keyword list.




Keywords must be separated by commas or semicolons.






Keyword formats

**Keywords are limited to 20 letters or numbers.
Remove spaces to squeeze in large keywords.

You realize of course, that searches on FR are not always dependable?

I've noticed there are many threads without any keywords. I try to add some when I see this, but I think the title search is the best option.

How many different keywords are there for ZOT? I have seen quite a few, some very imaginative. (mesozotty, mezotyoulongtime)

BTW, I know how to see my total number of posts, but how do you see someone elses?

Thank you, thank you, TR. Somedays when I log on, I spend my time just adding "keywords" -- so later I, and others, can use that keyword to SEARCH.

Click on their name in a post to get their page, then click "In Forum".

I don't know how to do it if you don't see their name in a post already.

If you want information on articles relating to free speech on campus, a title search will probably not be as helpful as a search on the word campusspeech.

Despite some of the derisive keywords added to this post, I think this is helpful in explaining the value of keywords. Thanks.

If the title doesn't contain the relevant information, then an article without keywords will just disappear into nothingness.


A sample of today's vague news headlines:

Shooting suspect to appear in court

Rhetoric flows as 4 plead guilty in protest

And also to mention, those very important names, events, places, relevant factoids which are NOT in the Article title nor would you think to find such information within an article, so titled. After a time, one can "keyword search" an obscure name.. and voila! find that person trekking amid questionable activities (for example) or among curious friends.

I find keyword searches almost completely useless. Some articles never get any keywords added... others might not have the keyword you've got in mind... still others might have the keyword you want ... only misspelled.

Plus, articles returned by a keyword search are ordered by the time that the keyword was added... not by popularity, relevance, or even the date that the message was posted. That means finding a thread from more than a few months ago (especially if the keyword is popular) can be excruciating.

Title searches have similar problems. As someone mentioned upthread, trying to find postings that relate to free speech on college campuses might say something like "Okoboji U Newspaper Fined for Editorial".

The best way I've found to read relevant articles is to use google. Say you're trying to find articles about campus speech on FR. Go to google and type site:freerepublic.com campus free speech. The magic phrase "site:[[domain]]" (remember that colon) will instruct google to only return pages that live on [[domain]]. Then you've got all of google's page ranking power right at your fingertips. You'll get much more reliable results than anything you can (or should be able to) do through FR's various search abilities.

They are an extremely useful tool, but perhaps mainly for the individual or groups who use them.

For instance:

I can look back at old FReeps in Fayetteville by quickly searching on the word "Fayetteville", and I will have very little extraneous stuff to wade through.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/keyword?k=fayetteville

I know the after-Freep threads will come up because we always, as a group, use the fayetteville keyword when we write an after-action report.

Keywords are excellent for tracking topics of personal interest.
