32 keywords is your limit when using Google search engines.
Meta-Search Engines are tools that search multiple search engines
at once There are complicating issues that come with this as well.
Each search engine uses slightly different stylec, meta-search
tools have a hard time keeping up. Only a small subset of search
engines support advanced search features like field search
commands, most meta-tools do not map search strings with those
commands. Some meta-tools are not particularly useful for all the
types of advanced searches everyday. You should experiment with
these tools occasionally.

Definition: Power Search For Resumes : Finds resumes, CV’s, Vitae, Bios, Profiles, etc Stronger the keywords , the better your search returns will be. Pick the best keyword that might be represented on majority of resumes. Your search strings will work on most search engines so make sure to utilize as many as possible; the more search engines, the more candidates. Be sure when you are writing your search string to conform to each search engines syntax. (Desktop Reference Guide at end of this training) Create a search strings that will yield a manageable number of returns; between 50 -100 is a good range. 50,000 hits may seem impressive but it’s not all that useful. Don’t complicate your search ; make your strings effective and simple as possible. No need to spend all your time creating complex strings, it can be inefficient and frustrating. Much faster to run lots of simple searches for specifics. Avoid keywords that have multiple meanings OR places them in context by tying them to other keywords that will help define what you want. Example: a search for Java AND people you’ll get those who like coffee. If you add the word script, it will become clearer. You could drop the Java and just search for script this will bring back people. **Important to identify elements that your candidate would have on their resume, cv, vitae, AND plug-in those elements in the form of keywords, into the search engines.
