Usage of search in site

Update day March 28, 2011

It is explanation of method to search the site. 

Basic search method

When we input keyword that we want to search into the search box of screen top right corner and click "search" button, list of pages in conjunction with the keyword is displayed.
There is search method to do narrowing in search method and category to put plural keywords and operators (*, +) together as method to search efficiently.

Small and capital letter is not distinguished. For example, result to be provided by search of "Ama City" and search of "AMA CITY" is the same.

For example, we want to search "application"

Input example of search frame
We input with "application" on search frame

High search method

"AND" search

We input plural keywords and search page where all of keywords that we input is included in.
We put space between keywords.

For example, we want to search "application of ○○ section"

Input example of search frame
We input with "◯◯ section application" on search frame

OR search

We input plural keywords and search page where keyword that we input is included in with one either.
We put "OR" between keywords. Please input "OR" in capital letters.

For example, we want to search "keyword called census register or application"

Input example of search frame
We input with "census register OR application" on search frame

We exclude specific keyword (-)

We search page that does not include keyword that we input.
We attach negative sign (-) right in front of keyword. Negative sign pays charge account for space just before keyword first.

For example, in "keywords called census register, we want to search other than application"

Input example of search frame
We input with "census register - application" on search frame

Vague search by keyword (*)

We search vague keyword.
We replace with any character string and search when we input "*" into vague part.

For example, when "we want to look for application about fund transfer, but official name does not become clear" 

Input example of search frame
We input with "fund transfer * application" on search frame

Exact match search (+) not to include synonym

Synonym is word having same meaning and contents.
Search including synonym is carried out, but usually uses because we may be searched to unnecessary synonym when we want to search only keyword that completely fits.
Only search results to accord exactly are displayed by search keyword that we input when we attach "+" right in front of keyword (it prevent space from entering after "+"). We can perform the same operation even if we surround one keyword in double quote ("").

For example, we want to search only in keyword called "elderly person"

Input example of search frame
We input with "+ elderly person" on search frame
