The language for search queries consists of search operators, which are intended to
- specify the distance between keywords
- clarify the search terms
- exclude certain words from monitoring
Basic operators in YouScan:
- To find words that appear side by side in the text, use the /1 operator. This way you will find mentions where there is only a space between the keywords.
For example coca /1 cola.
- The space between the words in the query is equal to the AND operator.
- The maximum size of a search query is 4000 characters.
- Search queries are not case-sensitive, so you can either use capital letters or lower-case letters.
- Verbs must be used in bare infinitive to be conjugated into different forms.
- Nouns, adjectives, pronouns, numerals must be used in a singular and subjective case, so they change their form automatically.
- For all languages except English and Russian, specify words in all the desired forms. Change them by gender, case, number.
