How do I select a search category?
The main search box will provide five of the most common search categories Web, Images, Videos, News and Local for quick searches. To see all the additional search categories from the search box, select the More and a sub-menu with the additional search categories will be displayed. Once you select the search category from sub-menu, the More search box will change to selected search category, ready for you to enter your search query.
You can select all the search categories GoPit provides on any of the page by selecting the Search Categories . You will then be provided all the search categories Gopit has to offer. Click on the search category icon and the search box will automatically change to your selected search category. Enter your search query, click the search or press enter and your results will be displayed.
Can I do an advanced search?
Advanced searching can be done by:
Selecting the Advance Search in the main search box from home page. When selected, the Advanced search box will be displayed.
Click the More search box button, from the sub-menu select Advanced and the the Advanced search box will be displayed.
How do I change the language?
Can I only have search results from a certain country?
How do I change the location of search results?
You may also turn the auto-detection off by going to Tools , then select Advanced . Under the Search Location, check the “Don’t use my location” and this will turn off the auto-detection. You would then need to manually enter a location for specific search categories that require a location to provide results.
How do you turn the page to next set of results?
Troubleshooting: If you are having issues with infinite scroll try refreshing the page.
Certain browser zoom levels or screen resolutions can effect the infinite scroll.
To adjust the zoom level you can click the “Ctrl” on keyboard, while scrolling the page scroll on mouse to change the page zoom level. You should see an option in top right menu of browser which will allow you to “Set as Default” or 100% zoom level. By doing this should fix the infinite scroll to allow page turns for additional results display.
What is the easiest way to find local businesses?
By offering a separate Local search category will make it much easier to sort through results for local businesses directly. With GoPit you won’t need to do your local searches through the Web category like many search engines today have you do. This only confuses local results with global results and makes it harder to decipher from each.
The same process used to find local business results also applies to GoPit’s Jobs and Deals search categories. Easily find local job postings and deals with a click of a button.
How do I switch between list view and grid view?
If you would like to permanently switch to Grid view from List (default), go to the Tools under the Search Display, check the the Grid view, then click the Save. This will permanently switch all the results to Grid view.
What is Quick Look and can I view all the results in Quick Look?
Quick Look for Images will allow you to view a larger view of the image in the frame.
Quick Look for Videos will allow you to view the video directly in the frame.
Quick Look for Documents will provide the selected document to be viewed in the frame that can be downloaded directly from the frame.
Most informational sites (i.e. Wikipedia) will be allowed in the Quick Look frame. There are some websites that don’t allow their content to be viewed in the Quick Look frame because of sensitive information or security concerns.
If you click on the Quick Look and no website is displayed within five seconds, then more than likely that selected website isn’t allowed to be viewed in a Quick Look frame. You may get an instant notice that the website can’t be viewed in the Quick Look frame depending on your browser.
Quick Look is not available for Social or Travel categories.
What is the best way to search for tickets?
What is the best way to search for deals?
You can also search for “Printable” coupons in selected area which will require a keyword to provide results. If you are getting no results from deals, try changing the location and/or keyword to provide results.
How do you share the search results on social networks or by email?
Click on the Share icon and a box will pop up with the available share locations such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Email and many more.
To share a result is very simple. You select the result to share, then the social network, it will then prompt you to login to your social network (if you are not already logged in). After you have logged into social network, you will click the post button and it will then post the GoPit search result to your social network wall, post, page, etc.
