Don't Include – To search for pages that include some terms but not others use the minus/negative symbol.

Wild Cards - Wotbox supports the use of wild cards in searches: Use the ? to replace a single character, e.g. tr?vel instead of travel. Use the * to replace multiple characters, e.g. tr*l instead of travel.
Wotbox also allows some specialist queries to help users refine their searches to return more relevant results.
Site Search – To search a specific website for a keyword use the site:domainname query syntax.
This will then return all pages from www.amazon.com that contain the word books.
Country Search – To search for pages from a specific country use the country:code keyword syntax.
This will only return pages that have a UK suffix or are hosted on servers situated in the uk. Please click here for a list of all country codes.
You can also access this feature by clicking on the required country flag displayed in the search results.
Wotbox provides up to a maximum of three Sponsored Listing results for each search. The listings are provided by a third party and are keyword triggered to offer the user a commercial alternative to their results.
