    The Mysterious Search Terms
    I just had one of those moments where I was reviewing my logs and came across a phrase that sent 6 people to my site from Yahoo yesterday.

    And then I started thinking... Where the hell are those 3 words on my website?

    So I searched high and low, and even in between, until I finally found them.

    It was quite a chore mind you... Next time I try to find something on my own site, I think I'll use the Yahoo engine instead of my own

    LOL I do that with G sometimes. And if I can't find where on the page the words are, I'll have the cache highlight 'em for me!

    In IE Hit control f when your on the page and the search box will come up and highlight the word/phrase your looking for. Firefox control F brings up a search box in the lower left corner.

    Easier than using cache sometimes, especially on a long page. The search will pop you right to where the term is and it is not SE dependent.

    AFAIK control f will search any document with text....in windows only I'm not a mac user but I'm sure there's a similar function.

    Well, "Find" is great unless the keywords were Alt Image Text.

    OR if you want you can find a program called "Search & Find" on the internet, it'll search files within directories, etc. for specific words and return stats on what files the word or phrase is in, what line it's on, how many occurances, etc.

    Thanks for the tips. I guess that ultimately, as long as my customers find the keywords, I'm happy.
