easy search

Postby Bill Bentley » Wed Jan 14, 2015 7:01 pm

Hi Bob,

chatting to another member recently he asked me how to get onto 'easy search' - supporting the Arc. Having now looked for it myself, on this site, I can't find it either.

Perhaps now, at the start of the year it would be a good idea to re-post, advertise this facillity afresh. I for one am well satisfied. It's not perfect but then again neither are any of the other search machines.

One small tip for other overseas users: don't forget to mark the 'internationl search box', otherwise it will only search UK databanks.

Happy hunting !

Bill,

Thank you for bringing this one up. Although I had the link in my bookmarks, it was hidden in the filing system. I have now attached it to my bookmarks bar in place of Google, which I have moved elsewhere, so Easysearch will be the first port of call. The only downside I find is that it is Yahoo based, and Yahoo IMO tend to cock things up, more than Google. Anyway, I'll use this first before Google.

Thanks again Bill.
Regards
