Search Is No Longer Boolean logo

Do you think Google supports Boolean search? Do you think LinkedIn supports Boolean search?

No! Neither does.

While both sites retain their Boolean operators for advanced users, their focus has shifted to semantic search: pulling in relevant data even if it is not a textual match. To use modern search engines effectively, we must combine traditional Boolean with these semantic search features. We must also update our expectations in order to correctly interpret search results.

This class will review the current Google and LinkedIn search algorithms and features.

Recently, we were lucky enough to learn from Google insiders that Google responds differently to what it considers “open-ended” and “restrictive” searches. (There is no documentation on this.) If your goal is to maximize search results (especially with X-Ray searching), these insights are crucial for your sourcing.

We have also extensively researched how LinkedIn interprets your queries and discovered key differences between our expectations and how LinkedIn search really works. After taking our class, you will be able to update your search strings to get the correct results.

We look forward to sharing this new and practical material with you!

Class Outcomes: You will learn how Google and LinkedIn search really work in 2022. We will show you how to update your search strings to maximize the number and accuracy of your results on both platforms.

Who Will Benefit: Sourcers, recruiters, and talent acquisition leaders who rely on accurate, effective searches to find candidates online. Anyone using Google or LinkedIn for research must learn this information or get left behind.

Included: Whether you attend the live class or purchase a recording, everyone who takes this course will receive a complete recording and the presentation slides to keep.

30 Days Support: This class includes our 30-day online support guarantee. Get answers to your questions, additional examples, and suggestions for implementing what you learn!
