Simple Search
If you have a general subject in mind (like "baseball"), type the word or words in the Search box and click the Search button.
free2explore will search googles entire database for those that contain words from your query. The more matches free2explore finds for a Web site, the more prominently it will be featured in your search results.

If you know exactly what you want, you can get better results by entering very specific information into the Search box. free2explore allows you to use three methods to refine your search:

Searching for an Exact Phrase
Enter quotes (" ") around terms to require that the entire phrase be found in the search. For example, "royals baseball" returns listings where the words "royals" and "baseball" appear together and in that order, either in the title, the URL of the Web site or the document.

Searching With Required Words
Use the plus sign (+) before a word to require that it be found in all of the search results. For example, royals +baseball (include a space between the first word and the + symbol) returns all listings that contain "baseball." Those listings that also contain "royals" in them will be returned first.

Searching With Excluded Words
Use the minus sign (-) before a word to require that it not be found in the search results. For example, royals -family (include a space between the first word and the - symbol) lists sites containing "royals" but not "family."
