A Recruiters’ Guide for Searching On Bing: Lesson #1 by Kay

Bing is the world’s first Decision Engine – a faster way to make more informed decisions, delivering:

·         Great results

·         A richer, more organized experience

·         Powerful decision making tools to help you accomplish key tasks more easily

This isn’t a complicated process and the logic is all in how you apply it. Bing gives you the tool to find what you are searching for with ease. As a recruiter/sourcer/researcher, I use these tricks all the time, and you will want to think effective, simplistic, and less complicated when structuring your search strings and the results will come with this Decision Engine. Bing brings a fresh approach and incorporating some specialties, like domain, sites, region specific domains and much more.  This fresh approach will help you structure strings with ease.

Advanced Searches

If you’ve done a search and want to narrow the results, you can use Bing’s advanced search option to help with that task.

Choose the parameters of your search. You can look for results by:

Search Terms

·         All of these terms: Uses an AND (A search keyword that you can use to find results that contain all the search terms you specify.) operator. Bing ignores punctuation and stop words  for this type of search term. (STOP WORDS  In database searching, “stop words” are small and frequently occurring words like and, or, in, of that are often ignored when keyed as search terms. Sometimes putting them in quotes ” ” will allow you to search them.)

·         Any of these terms: Uses an OR (A search keyword that you can use to find results that contain either of the search terms that you specify.) operator. Bing ignores punctuation and stop words for this type of search term.

·         This exact phrase: Searches for the exact phrase, including punctuation and stop words.

·         None of these terms: Uses a NOT (A search keyword that you can use to find results that don’t contain a search term you specify.) operation.  The NOT operation will group the terms within parentheses, including punctuation and stop words.
