What happened to the Deal Alerts FAQ / search keywords guide

Wesociety 227 59 November 24, 2015 at 08:06 PM
At the bottom of the Deal Alerts page ( http://slickdeals.net/forums/sddealalerts.php )

There's a link to a "search keywords guide" that points to here: http://slickdeals.net/forums/faq.php?faq=sd_faq_item#faq_deal_alerts_faq

That seems to be missing. What happened to the Deal Alerts FAQ?

hi wesociety,

the new user's guide and faq are in the process of being revamped Smilie

in the meantime, there's an unofficial one written by a member of our qa team here: http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=67718300&postcount=540

i hope this helps!

Jumping in to ask a question: What does CCC stand for? I know it's a price tracker, but I can't remember which one. TIA!

eta: Nevermind, I received a response when I posted the question on a more recent post. camelcamelcamel

Is this still the current guide, or is there a new/revamped one which now takes priority?

Thank you.

I'm still not receiving any results from some recent Deal Alerts that I set up... so I'm thinking it might be something else I'm doing wrong.

What about commas? Could that be it?

If I have a Deal Alert named (for example) "shoes" and I'm interested in Asics, Brooks, and Saucony... should it look like 1 or 2?
  1. asics brooks saucony
  2. asics, brooks, saucony
I didn't see any direction on this in the guide you linked to in the 2nd post.

Hi, You would want to use this guide here.
http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=67718300&postcount=540

But for OR searching, you want to use the pipe symbol |

So it would look like Asics | Brooks | Saucony , that would search for Asics OR Brooks OR Saucony.

Hope that helps. Smilie
