[ba-unrev-talk] Getting a search to work
As promised, here is the latest search I'm doing
in which looking for terms isn't narrowing things
down a whole lot. (Because concrete examples
make good use cases.) (01)
Find a link to the Stanford University Department
of Exercise Science. (I saw where someone got
a masters in it, I'm interested in investigating the
Google: stanford exercise science
102,000 hits. Everybody and anybody doing anything
remotely related to exercise, with a mention of
Stanford somewhere in the paper. (03)
Google: stanford "exercise science" program
1,540 hits. All about different exercise programs,
citing credentials or information from stanford. (04)
Google: stanford "exercise science" department
1,270 hits. Mostly with people who's credentials
cite a degree from that department. (05)
Google: Stanford University Department of Exercise Science
49,700 hits. Every exercise science department, anywhere
in the country, or references to same. (06)
Google "Stanford University Department of Exercise Science"
0 hits. (07)
Google: "Stanford University" "Exercise Science"
966 hits. Still pages the reference people who came from
Google: "Stanford University" "Exercise Science" home
639 hits. Not a lot of reduction. (09)
Clearly, there is some term I *should* know that will take me
to Stanford's home page. (For some reason, www. stanford.edu
took me back to the engineering page, when I was looking at
that. Now that I've retried it, www.stanford.edu got me to the
university's home page. (010)
Even then, though, I'm in trouble...
* The department listing doesn't show "Exercioxe Science"
or "Department of Exercise Science", even though about
1,000 papers use that exact phrase in their list of credentials. (011)
* The link to the Help Center doesn't appear to be working. (012)
* I can't find a physical education department or anything similar,
So I sent a note to the webmaster.
Maybe I'll take a drive...
