Keyword Search

Definition(s)

  • A common search technique that uses query words (“keywords”) and looks for them in ESI, using an index. A keyword search is a basic search technique that involves searching for one or more words within a collection of documents and returns only those documents that contain the search terms entered. The documents returned by the search engine are called the search results. Keywords often form a basic building block for constructing other more complex compound searches. Such compound searches use other search elements such as Boolean logic.
