  • 8. www.symbolhound.com A search engine that ignores special characters ……
  • 9. Hi Martin, That's great to hear you're featuring symbolhound in your talk. At this point we don't have any plans to expand symbolhound's index -- it's in maintenance mode at this point, so we're not really adding anything to it. If you have suggestions for specific sites you'd like to see indexed, though, I'll take note of them in case we ever do decide to expand. SymbolHound actually does include the @ symbol already. See for example this search: http://symbolhound.com/?q=%40 Searching for @ won't turn up email addresses, though (assuming that's why you're interested in the @ symbol), because query terms only do prefix-matching. That is, if you search for the term "red" (without the quotes), it will return pages that include terms that begin with "red" -- for example, "red", "redo", and "reduce", but it will not return terms that only contain red somewhere else, e.g. "tired" or "credit" will not be returned even though they both contain "red" in them.
