|The essentials of The Online Casino Gambling Directory search|
Doing a search is easy. Simply type one or more search terms (the words or phrase that best describe the information you want to find) into the search box and hit the 'Enter' key or click on the Search button.
In response, The Online Casino Gambling Directory produces a results page: a list of web pages related to your search terms, with the most relevant page appearing first, then the next, and so on.
|Narrowing your search results|
After you enter a search term, you can choose to narrow your results by using the radio buttons and check boxes below the search box. Just click on what you want, and the search results will be narrowed based on the radio buttons and check boxes that you selected.
Scroll down to see all of the choices that are available to you. They are: US player policy, Star rating, Site type, FREE chips, First deposit bonus, Minimum deposit for bonus, Language, Currency, Certifications, Site software.
|Choosing search terms|
Choosing the right search terms is the key to finding the information you need.
Start with the obvious - if you're looking for sites that offer slot machines, try slot or slot machine.
But it's often advisable to use multiple search terms; if you want to play a particular type of slot machine like Jungle Jim, you'll do better with Jungle Jim slot machine than with either Jungle Jim or slot machine by themselves.
You might also ask yourself if your search terms are sufficiently specific. It's better to search on blackjack or craps than on table games. But choose your search terms carefully; The Online Casino Gambling Directory looks for the search terms you chose, so slot machine casino will probably deliver better results than really nice online casinos on the Internet.
|Searches are NOT case sensitive. All letters, regardless of how you type them, will be understood as lower case. For example, searches for slot machine, Slot Machine, and sLoT mAcHiNe will all return the same results.|
|Automatic "and" queries|
|By default, The Online Casino Gambling Directory search only returns pages that include all of your search terms. There is no need to include "and" between terms. Keep in mind that the order in which the terms are typed will affect the search results. To restrict a search further, just include more terms. For example, to find a site that offers slots, craps, and blackjack, simply type slots craps blackjack.|
|Automatic exclusion of common words|
|The Online Casino Gambling Directory search ignores common words and characters such as "a" and "the", as well as certain single digits and single letters, because they tend to slow down your search without improving the results. The search will indicate if a common word has been excluded by displaying details on the results page below the search box.|
|Word variations (stemming)|
|The search engine at The Online Casino Gambling Directory uses stemming technology. Thus, when appropriate, it will search not only for your search terms, but also for words that are similar to some or all of those terms. If you search for slot machine, the search engine will also search for slot machine, and other related variations of your terms.|
