General Search Tips

Most of the search platforms provide Boolean search operators in advanced search. AND narrows a search, OR expands your search, NOT excludes results with unwanted keyword. Kindly find the following 4 examples for reference.


Example 1: Title keyword search with AND. e.g. “integrated resorts” AND hotels


Example 2: Title keyword search with OR. e.g. “integrated resorts” OR hotels


Example 3: Title keyword search with NOT. e.g. “integrated resorts” NOT hotels


Example 4: Combination search. e.g. (resorts OR hotels) AND management

Phrase Search is to search an exact word or phrase, enclose the term in quotation marks. 

For example: “hospitality industry”, “integrated resorts”

Wildcards allow users to construct queries with partial search terms. Use a question mark (?) in a search term to match any one character and use an asterisk (*) in a search term to match any set of zero or more characters.


For example:
•    The search term “l?st” matches last, list, etc.
•    The search term “gam*” matches game, gaming, gambling, etc.
