Searching for professionals on LinkedIn.com? At this time, we have the most powerful – but not officially documented – search ways and filters and cross-referencing ability, exceeding (the expensive) Recruiter’s. You can search for unique filters such as headlines and self-entered skills, and combine other filters such as company size, type, years of experience, or at school in Boolean expressions. …

LinkedIn used to limit messages to your Group members to 15 per month. This restriction is gone. If you have a basic or business account, you can message fellow group members without restrictions. However, Group member search only offers finding people by name. How do you find group members who match a professional requirement? Here is a way I came …

Can being “negative” help in sourcing? I do not mean to suggest that you will source better results when you are in a bad mood, voice dissatisfaction, or upset others. This is an essay on the Boolean “NOT” logic. When searching, the productive approach we teach is to imagine the “right” terms you will find and put those terms and …

It has occurred to me that the operators not only allow to expand the searching power in “positive ways” but also make it possible to search for the absence of some values.

Enjoy the Operators While They Last #OSINT

  The LinkedIn hidden search operators are back! Nobody knows for how long they will work this time (we enjoyed them for a year and a half a while ago).

You cannot Google for a part of a word. (The Asterisk * means one or a few words in Google’s search syntax.) However, using the wonderful Google Custom (or Programmable) Search Engines (CSEs), you can search for partial words in the URLs. The way to do so is to take advantage of CSE URL templates.
