Thanks for the colon. I’ve not been using that one. I use this all the time rather than using the search on web sites. Some of them are flakey and others useless. If I wanted the Florida Reef pattern by Petra Breakstone from ravelry, I put ravelry Florida Reef Petra. It would bring it up as the first one in the list on the google search.

Actually, Bill, it just might work. For example, I frequently use Google to search for items on Amazon because it does a much better job of limiting results to specifics. An easy example is a search for a specific symphony. With Amazon, you can get a slew of results for the particular composer, but Amazon doesn’t seem to find particular symphonies, just a long list of many recordings where “symphony” is in the recording’s details. Or it might be a pillow with specific dimensions. It’s critical to begin the Google search with the website name followed by a colon, then as much specific detail as you can provide. For instance:
Amazon.com: Mozart, symphony 38
If I know the conductor of the performance I want, I’ll include it.
Hi, Karen. This won't work for Judy, because she is trying to search a site to see which products they carry on that site.
When I can’t get a search to work on the site, I go back to google and put in the site name and what I’m searching for.
Bill, I tried the space bar, the enter key and the left mouse button and none worked. The site is:
Store.healthylivingshop.com no www before it. Judy & Libby
