I'm sure I'm simply overlooking how to do this. I'm trying to search for "rod holder" and get the correct results. When I type the words rod holder without quotes, only the word holder is searched. When I search for the word "rod holder" with quotes, I get: Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms. Now I know what you're saying, well Jorden, maybe there are no posts that have the words "rod holder" in them. Yeah right. But just to be sure, I searched for the phrase cup holder, which I knew was in one of my threads. Same problem as rod holder. I think the problem is that the word rod and cup are too short for the search engine, but that is only speculation. It would make sense as to why only the word holder is returned in the searches.

I also tried:
rod, holder
rod; holder
rod AND holder
rod & holder
rod-holder
rod+holder
rod:holder
(rod holder)
So the question how can I search for the term: rod holder and get relevant results?

Thanks

Jorden: You're right on the word "rod" being too short - here is my result:

The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: rod

Use Google, but restrict your googling to within BOC. Enter this into the Google search window.
