Hi....I have not used bing in a while (shame on me) for seaching and have forgotten a bit.

 

Why doesn't this string work?

 

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv OR intitle:vitae OR inurl:resume OR inurl:cv OR inurl:vitae) "software test" hardware  –job –sample –consulting

 

Thank you for your help.

Bing doesn't have the inurl: operator.

I don't believe the command 'inurl' is accepted in Bing. But it does like just 'URL' - I got results w/the following string:

intitle:resume OR intitle:cv OR intitle:vitae OR url:resume OR url:cv OR url:vitae) "software test" hardware -job -sample -consulting

You could also use this command:

instreamset:(url title) resume OR cv OR vitae etc...

Gary,

I know we all want the inurl function, and we all agree that the Bing documentation is pretty awful...

Just url: means something different on Bing. Bing doesn't support the inurl: functionality. The instreamset initially had a documentation flaw; it wouldn't provide the inurl: function either.

Take a look:

Thanks for the clarification, Irina!

That link you gave above is quite dated  - maybe they enabled instreamset now. I believe the latest list of Bing's operators you had sent a link to (http://booleanstrings.ning.com/forum/topics/bing-operators) lists both the url & instreamset functions-
