Another Yahoo feature combination!


Since earlier I shared with you the “feature” command I wanted to open it up to another cool way to search for people. Remember this is a command used particularly in yahoo. A cool way to combine the feature command is with the word homepage. When combined this way it finds personal pages excluding commercial or business sites without having to use any exclusions. Notice the example below.

Example:

feature:homepage "software engineer" cobol

This search string quickly returns about 1,500 results all from individual’s home sites that mention that they are software engineer who mention cobol as part of their skill set. Not bad, huh!!
