Books, Music, Film - search techniques in search engines
As few criteria as possibleIf you want to receive as many suitable offers relevant to your search, put in as few terms as possible. If you look for e.g. the author "Johann Wolfgang von Goethe", you will miss all offers where the seller only "Goethe" has stated.
Avoid "Allerweltsbegriffe"If you are looking for a book, an MC or a movie, avoid terms like "manual", "arias" or "edition" as far as possible, otherwise you will be overwhelmed by the number of offers.
Avoid PitfallsAvoid in your search for antiquarian books (of course after audio books, children's books, reference books, etc.) according to CDs, MCs or vinyl records, according to DVDs or videos all terms that a seller could write different, in particular
- Numerals (3, three or III?)
- Words that may be abbreviated, for example, "Association" - "Assn."
- Isolated / together words (especially in german), for example, "viel versprechend" - "vielversprechend"
- Old /new spelling (especially in german),e.g. "greulich" - "gräulich"
If you can not avoid these words, please start multiple searches to find all the deals.
