This time, let’s look for a user-experience designer in San Francisco that has around 10 years of experience. My first boolean, without the 10 years of experience requirement:

user-experience-design information-architecture web-applications mobile-applications “san francisco” saas site:linkedin.com -profiles -jobs

More than 8,000 results! However, my first result is an user INTERFACE designer, not user EXPERIENCE. The second result is a UXD specialist. Let’s see if we can limit the results by the number of years of experience.

I am going to add “7..10 years ****experience” to my original string:

“7..10 years ****experience” user-experience-design information-architecture web-applications mobile-applications “san francisco” saas site:linkedin.com -profiles -jobs

From 8,000 to 2! Except neither are in the San Francisco area. But it does look like the years of experience part of my boolean did grab correctly in the first result. =-) Well, except I put 4 stars, and there are 4 words between years and experience in the result?? Maybe because I did not use spaces?? Let’s try it with spaces, same number of stars.

“7..10 years * * * *experience” user-experience-design information-architecture web-applications mobile-applications “san francisco” saas site:linkedin.com -profiles -jobs

Wow! The spaces took us from 2 to 675 results! Hmmm… Still perplexed by the stars…
