Search Finance Trends Matter

In an effort to help you better find the information you are looking for, I've installed a Google Custom Search bar to help you scour this blog for relevant posts.

You'll find the new search bar in the lower right hand sidebar, underneath our Subscribe and Bookmark widget buttons. Just type in any keyword or search term you like, and hit the search button. All relevant results will be displayed on the next page, and you will also have the option of broadening your search over the entire web.

I chose Google Custom Search, a much needed improvement to our previous site search tools, to help you better find the information you are looking for here at Finance Trends Matter. You will now be able to easily search through all our past content, and find related posts on any subject of interest.

Quick example: say you came here looking for information about hedge fund manager, John Paulson. If you came to a certain post by way of a Google search, or a direct link, you may have seen only one piece of information on the subject before deciding to leave.

But if you were to look over to the Custom Search bar and try out this query, "John Paulson", for more information, you would find an additional number of posts mentioning John Paulson, as well as links to relevant post titles. You'll find even more results here for terms like "gold", "inflation", and "Marc Faber".

So use this search feature. You'll have more information with a minimum of effort, and better search results. Hope this will help you to better navigate the site, and unlock the best content!
