    Default Excellent method for searching for stuff on TC using Google search

    The deficiencies of the TC search engine (no offense) are well known and various alternate techniques have been put forward. I found this to be the most effective:

    In a Google search window precede your search word(s) with site "talkclassical" and follow the search word(s) with site:www.talkclassical.com ...like this:

    site "talkclassical" your search word(s) here site:www.talkclassical.com

    So, if you are looking for something on the site, don't even bother to use it.

    The workaround, as first proposed by Taggart, is to use Google (Bing, DuckDuckGo, or whatever other search engine floats your boat) and add "site:talkclassical.com" to the keywords.
