Refine your online search terms with SortFix
That's where SortFix comes in. You can use this site to search Google, Yahoo! or DMOZ. After you enter your search words, SortFix will show your results on the lower half of the screen. On the top you'll see a list of associated words. You can drag words that are relevant to the "Add to Search" box and the words that you want to ignore to the "Remove" box. Click Search again and you should get more accurate results, plus some new terms that you can add or remove.
Overall, you probably spend a little longer looking things up using SortFix than you would if you just went to Google. But in the end you might get more relevant results. Check out a cute little demo video showing how to search for homemade ice cream recipes after the jump.
