Looking for an in-site
search engine? Unfortunately, there isn't one. Fortunately, Google
makes it possible for Win/IE users to do a site-wide search without one!
A search engine
would be really nice. But, for a variety of reasons, this method
will have to do for now.
The content of
individual articles can be searched by using your browser's
"Find" feature (usually, CTRL + f, or ALT + e, then select
"Find..."). Just type the term you are looking for in
the "Find" window, and hit the Enter key.
But that is still
pretty limited, since, if the term you are looking for isn't part of the
title of an article or in the specific article you are looking at,
"Find" will draw a blank.
Fortunately, if you are
using Microsoft Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP and Microsoft Internet
Explorer 5.0 or later, or Apple's Safari browser, you can use Google's
"Current Site" search that comes with a toolbar you can
install on your computer to integrate with your IE or Safari browser
Just go to the website
you want to search, click the down arrow on "Search Web" (or,
if you see it, "Search Site"), and select "Current
Site" from the drop down menu. The following will then appear in
the Google search window:
Just type in your
search term(s) after that, like this:
hypothyroid "insulin resistance"
Then hit your Enter key
or Google's Search button, and the webpages with those keywords/search
terms in that site will be returned.
If you click the
highlighter button on Google's toolbar, your keywords will be
highlighted when you look at the individual webpages Google found for
you. In the example above, "insulin resistance"
will be highlighted in one color, as one phrase. But if you had
typed in hypothyroid insulin resistance, without the quotes, each
word would appear in a different color.
