    Did you know that you can search for insanely specific topics from within this very website (uscg.org) without using this very website's search engine? (it means well..)

    The solution?

    www.google.com

    Yes, it's true.  Simply open www.google.com, type in your insanely specific topic of interest, then type 'uscg.org' beside it, click 'search' or hit the 'enter' button on your keyboard, and, voila!  You'll have much more success searching for your topic than you would have had with the included search engine on uscg.org!

    Don't see any results for your insanely specific topic?  Delete the 'uscg.org' from your search and try again!

    Still don't see any results for your insanely specific topic?  Come aboard www.uscg.org and allow our infinitely wise and courteous members try (98% success) and assist you.

    I use Google Analytics (http://www.google.com/alerts) which sends an email (or emails, depending on how you set it up) to your inbox every day. Those emails list Web pages google finds (including updates) based on search terms you entered in setting up the alert.


    For example, you can set up the following:


    Search terms: coast guard cutter new

    Type: (This is up to you. I use "Everything.")

    How often: ("As-it-happens" might send dozens of emails into your mail box a day. I just use "Daily.")

    Volume: ("All results" is just that, since "Best Results" might remove things that are of interest but seem tangential to the search engine.)

    Deliver to: (Your email address)


    It might take some tinkering to get a more precise listing of Web sites but it is well worth the time. You can also delete the alert if you find it's not helpful.
