Google a Specific Interest ?

How do you google a specific interest/concern without reading all the posts ?

Re: Google a specific interest ?

Click on the link in my sig line. Or use the small "Search" pull-down menu in the blue bar up top, right on the page.

If you use the drop-down, be sure to use the Google Custom Search. The search at the top is less than optimal.

(Definition of "Less than Optimal" -> It Sucks)

Re: Google a Specific Interest ?

Also from Google's own site, or a Google search box in your browser, you can type:

site:cruisersforum.com your search terms

There is no space between site and the colon and the website name. But there is a space before you begin your search term(s).
