Find SDK and Implementation Guide Content on MSDN or TechNet

  • Comments 0

If you are like me you spend a lot of time searching the internet for technical information. MSDN and TechNet have a lot of information, but when searching it you often have to filter out a lot of irrelevant content.

There is a trick you can use to filter search results so you only get results from a specific category of content on MSDN or TechNet.

To search for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 SDK content start with this URL:

http://www.bing.com/search?q=%5BSearch%20Terms%5D%20meta%3ASearch.MSHAttr.DocSetTitle(%22CRM2011SDK%22)%20site%3Amsdn.microsoft.com%20language%3AEN

To search for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 Implementation Guide content start with this URL:

http://www.bing.com/search?q=%5BSearch+Terms%5D+meta%3ASearch.MSHAttr.DocSetTitle%28%22CRM2011IG%22%29site%3Atechnet.microsoft.com

After you open the URL, save it as a shortcut and give it a name, for example: “CRM 2011 SDK” or “CRM 2011 IG”.

Both of these pages will open in Bing with specific criteria already entered in the search field. For the SDK search you will see this:

[Search Terms] meta:Search.MSHAttr.DocSetTitle("CRM2011SDK") site:msdn.microsoft.com language:EN

For the Implementation Guide search you will see this:

[Search Terms] meta:Search.MSHAttr.DocSetTitle("CRM2011IG")site:technet.microsoft.com language:EN

Once you save this URL as a favorite, you can easily open this page when you need it. To search, simply edit the content of the search field to replace the ‘[Search Terms]’ part with the search criteria you are looking for.

 

Cheers,
