For over two years now, The Appliantology Group has been hosted at MSN Groups. Despite some minor limitations, it has proven to be a popular and salubrious format for the AG. The lack of a site search, however, is a glaring shortcoming. As posts have been added and answered at the repair forum, it has turned into a colossal database of appliance repair information with no way to search it…until now. I’ve found a way to search the group using Google. Here’s how to do it:
- Go to Google’s homepage.
- Enter in your search term followed by site:groups.msn.com appliantology, all on the same line.
- You’ll be presented with pages of your search results, all from within the AG.
Let’s take a ezzample. S’ppose I have a problem with my Whirlpool gas dryer. I might use a search term such as Whirlpool gas dryer no heat. To search the AG, I’d go to Google and enter the following search term: Whirlpool gas dryer no heat site:groups.msn.com appliantology. That search gives 21 results, shown here.
Seek and ye shall find!
