Searching ShareCG

I can never get Share CG's search to find me anything related to what I'm looking for. I sought for anything relating to trolls or ogres, but only found this. Now, if you're thinking of my x, it might apply.

    I use Google with keyword 'sharecg.com' ... usually more effective.

    Googling with keyword 'site:sharecg.com' would work even better.

    That works, it also helps if you pick like 3D models, Poser, or Daz before you do a search.

    try the @ symbol in searching a site, ie -> ogre @sharecg.com

    did you have a space between the @ symbol and sharecg.com? it should have brought back just sharecg links if it was exactly " ogre @sharecg.com " in the google search area...

    Found this post! Started answering it and somehow got side tracked ? -- oh yeah, the coupons are working !!!

    Yes I had the space between the 2 words ... today then I tried it with quotes ... and got zippo.

    Then I tried a different approach to the browser ... apparently the search page I have looks normal until I use then and it comes back with an AVG secure search? ... anyway ... nothing about sharecg.com

    Then I tried via a shortcut to Google.com [which is often rerouted up here to .ca] and got an alternative search as it couldn't believe I meant what I said; dropped the sharecg.com and gave me just "ogre" ... hehehe

    Love modern technology eh?!

    So I clicked on the link to search what I asked for the 1st time and got a handful of responses some of which were actually for sharecg.com

    You know; this is actually one of the few times this procedure really wasn't working very well.

    The option for Google is
    site:www.sharecg.com

    Well looked up on Google's site and yes the (current anyways) method they list is using the site:xyz.com method. I have used the @ symbol for a while and it has worked but testing both it appears the site: method returns more results, which would make sense if it is the current listed method in Google's documentation.

    Almost forgot to say thanks, I'm now getting better search results :)

    As an aside, I did notice a lot more duplicates with site: vs @ (along with more results in general.)

    With some searches @ seems to bring back same results as just the web address, ie.. ' ogre sharecg.com ' and with others using the @ sign seems to work better... it's inconsistent and not sure why, oh well ;p
