How to search my archives


At least once a day I receive an email from a reader asking about an item or post from the past.

Now you can do what I do when I need that information.

Go the main Google search page and enter "bookofjoe" and, say, "carry-on" if you're looking for the post about the world's best carry–on bag that you know you saw in bookofjoe.


It's much faster, easier and more effective than entering terms in the search box at the top of my home page.

Far faster than my own proprietary search capability within TypePad.

So now you too can search like a pro.

Or at least, a ranking — if not rank — amateur.

Actually, the search box at the top of your page does the same exact thing, literally. It searches "bookofjoe.com" and whatever someone types in. (I know this because I looked at the code while trying to figure out how to put a Google search box on my blog.) Also in Google if someone types in [ site:www.bookofjoe.com ] and then the search terms afterwards, they will only search your site. If they just type in "bookofjoe" that would also bring up results for those who have mentioned your blog on theirs.
