Searching for Technical Content with Google
Many of you have told us that you prefer to search for Juniper Networks documentation using an external search engine such as Google. Because our website contains millions of technical documents, we recommend that you use operators to narrow your search when using an external search engine.
Operators are punctuation marks and short expressions that you can use to refine your search results. The following operators can help you to quickly find the information you need.
Table 1: Using Operators to Refine Your Google Search
quotation marks (“ “)
Search for an exact phrase.
“data center fabric”
This search only lists results that include references to data center fabric content.
“data * fabric”
The phrase matches a variety of terms including “data centre fabric” (using the British English spelling of “centre”), “data sheet fabric”, “data and fabric,” and “data fabric” (with nothing between the “data” and “fabric” terms).
minus sign (-)
mobile ip juniper -junos
This search finds information about Juniper Networks Mobile IP technology. Since it excludes Junos OS-based documentation, Steel-Belted RADIUS products rise to the top in the search results.
Limit your search to a single website.
This search lists MPLS content on Juniper’s website, including configuration information, Day One Guides, J-Net forum discussions, and training classes.
Limit your search to a specific term that appears within a website’s directory or URL.
junos bgp neighbor peer inurl:techpubs site:juniper.net
This search is restricted to the technical documentation pages on Juniper’s website.
Using these operators together, including multiple instances of the same operator, you can execute very specific and targeted searches. For example, consider the query:
srx "firewall filter" configuration example -inurl:pdf inurl:techpubs site:juniper.net
This example looks and sounds complicated, but what it really means is that we are looking for non-PDF content about firewall filter configuration examples for the SRX Series platforms within the Juniper Networks TechLibrary site . The results that we receive include a variety of examples, release notes, configuration guides, and some feature support guidelines that provide information about the supported features in the release.
