We've indexed more than five million distinct pages of content on AboveTopSecret.com, for an easy-to-use search engine that's more like asking questions of the smartest crowd of people you'll ever discover.
Use the field at left to enter anything from a simple one-word search to a complex query using conditional operators.
For example, if you want to search on the exact phrase Obama's birth certificate, you would type this in the search field;
"Obama's birth certificate"
Making sure you use the quotation marks.
But if you want to include any content on ATS that also discuss Kenya or Indonesia;
"Obama's birth certificate" Kenya Indonesia
The search engine will find the exact phrase and also content with other keywords.
To find content with one of any search terms, such as O'Hare UFO and terminal and control tower;
"O'Hare UFO" OR terminal OR "control tower"
ATS content with any one of those words will be found.
You can also tell the search engine to ignore specific words or phrases. For example, if you want material on Obama's birth certificate, but that doesn't contain the term birther;
"Obama's birth certificate" -birther
The minus sign in front tells search to ignore content with that word or phrase.
This is version 1.0 of the ASK ATS engine. Future improvements will include forum-specific searches, the ability to refine your searches based on the date a topic was authored, the date of a topic's last reply, number of flags, number of replies, and even specific members who replied to a topic.
