Can Advanced Internet Search… be Automated?

Many thanks to Hung Lee, the @Wise_Man_Say, for triggering this heated discussion on the Boolean Strings group:

It seems that there’s much confusion about terminology but most people use Internet search and Boolean search as synonyms (which is fine). But there are still perceptions that:
  • Sourcing equals “Boolean” searching
  • Searching is rocket science and is only for Masters
  • Limited searching would make for more productive time on the phone

and more.

If you search for candidates for your jobs on the Internet as a Recruiter or a Sourcer, I absolutely recommend taking some time out of your day to read through the replies – 20 of them at the time of this posting – and add yours!
