Searching the Poe Society Website, via Google


∞∞∞∞∞∞∞


Due to the overhead of creating and supporting an independent search function, this site does not currently have such a capability. Fortunately, searching of the site may be accomplished through the use of GOOGLE, and probably better than we could do it anyway. Here are instructions for using GOOGLE to search this site: Please read all of these steps:

  • 1.)  Go to GOOGLE’s advanced search page: http://www.google.com/advanced_search
  • 2.)  If it is not already set properly, on the line marked “Domains,” select “only” in the first box and enter “http://www.eapoe.org” in the second box.
  • 3.)  For “Find Results,” enter the desired word or phrase in the appropriate box, and set the number of desired results.
  • 4.)  Click on the “Google Search” button.

 
Tips:

  • When selecting the search results, using the “cache” option has the additional advantage of highlighting the text for which the page was selected, although it may not show the most current contents.
  • Our web site is structured in such a way that the file names displayed for the search results give some idea as to whether the resulting page is a tale, poem, letter, etc. Admittedly, the actual file names are somewhat cryptic, but at least the path names are somewhat meaningful. For example:
    • “www.eapoe.org/works/tales/morguec.htm” is one of several versions of Poe’s tale “The Murders in the Rue Morgue.”
    • “www.eapoe.org/works/letters/p2910300.htm” is one of Poe’s letters, dated October 30, 1829.
    • “www.eapoe.org/pstudies/ps1960/p1968102.htm” is a Spring 1968 article from Poe Studies/Dark Romanticism.
