Easy way to search this forum Mon, 06/29/09 12:01 AM (permalink)
I've found an easy way to search this whole board and especially this particular forum.
 
Go to Google.com and in the search bar enter;
 
City name, state site:roadfood.com
 
Example,
 
Wheeling,WV site:roadfood.com
 
Be sure NOT to put a space after site:

    Mike: A number of times recently when I have been researching something on Google I've been referred to Roadfood by the search engine. It never occurred to me , being computer ignorant, that it was showing me the easy way to search on Roadfood.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Cheers, john

          Mike,

          Thanks for the tip. I've always searched Roadfood.com in Google by putting Roadfood.com in the words but the site: in front of Roadfood.com really does refine the search.

              Click on Forums to bring up a list of all the forums. Then select the forum you want to post in that brings up a list of all the threads in that forum. Then you will see a button that says Post New Thread.

                    This is a great way to search for things on Roadfood.

                    Don't forget when searching food or restaurant related stuff that many times there will be a "more information from roadfood.com" link under a topic that did come up from here. There might be 100 or more other things said at Roadfood about what you are researching if you click that link.

                      This is how I  learned of RF. I have told others to do same. Great that it is set up this way, IMHO it is user friendly.

                        Great tip Mike! Using the roadfood.com search function can be difficult at times. This is easier.

                            Have you ever gotten onto FourSquare and searching for places to eat near by...its a good site for that.

                                    I'm having trouble making any search on this site work right now so i am definitely going to try this method.
