Search results display screen

Search results display screen goes through lists of leads it gets from search engines and looks for your keywords. When they match, the display is updated in the 'Sites matched criteria' row.

'Sites available, but not check for criteria' shows how many links the program has found from the search engines. All of these have not been checked yet. As they are, this number will be decreased. However, it is usually always increasing, as

more and more possible links are found. It may even get to the hundreds of thousands. This is not unusual. It doesn't impact the program's performance.

The next row, 'Sites checked for criteria already' shows how many web pages have been checked for your criteria. Unlike the search engines, which often judge a pages relevance by how many other web pages point to it, Search results display screen ensures that your keywords or criteria actually appear on the page.

As mentioned elswhere in this documentation, different strategies are useful for finding exactly what you want. To find a Hawaii travel vacation, you might put in +hawaii +travel +vacation . On the other hand, to find an exact match of your criteria, put it in quotes , like this "early promotion program". This ensures and exact match.

The 'Other data' row is incremented when criteria relevant to Search results display screen is found, such as addresses, phone numbers, and zip codes.

Down below this is a label which indicates what kind of match is happening, such as 'Search query found', or 'Matched', which means a non search engine page has matched the criteria, and will be searched for phones, zip codes and addresses.

In the middle of the screen is a 'Stop' button. Press this to stop the current search. You can resume this search at any time by pressing the 'Choose Search' tab, and highlighting the search criteria in the list. Then you press 'Continue Search'.

Above the 'Stop' button is a label showing what we are searching for, such as 'Searching for: +independent +contractor. This merely lets you know you are doing the search you thought you were.

On the right is a label which says 'Successful web updates:', followed by a number. This tells you that the program has added your results to its search engine on the web, So even if you are away from your computer, you can find your results on our search engine on the web. Even if you erase your files, or reinstall, these results are available.

Underneath that label is one which says: 'Unsuccessful web updates'. For various reasons the updates don't complete correctly. This is a count of those.

Net line shows 'Average upload time', which is how many seconds to do 1 web update on the average.

Below this is a table whose first column says 'Type'. This is what type of data it is (http(web site), or phone, address, etc. The second column shows the title of the web site. The third column shows what the actual data is,(web site, phone number, or whatever).

Only the last few hundred of these results are shown to save memory in running the program. You can see all the results by creating a 'Local report' from the 'Choose search' menu.
