About Searching

The Iconfactory search engine is a great tool to help you find whatever you are looking for. We have associated keywords with all of the content available on the site. These keywords span icon sets, desktop pictures, iPulse Jackets, software products, support items, design services projects and even news page postings.

In order to make it easy for you to find what you are looking for, we have built some features into our search engine that allow you to customize your search:

  • car - Finds an exact match for the characters "car"
  • car* - Finds matches that begin with "car". Helpful for searches of singular and plural items (like "car" and "cars")
  • *car - Finds matches that end in "car"

Helpful Search Tips

  • Use specific words: Stay away from common words and search for specific, unique terms like "galactica" or "halloween".
  • Use singular terms: When searching, stay away from plural terms and always use the singular instead.
  • Don't use punctuation: Punctuation such as , . / ! ( ) is ignored by the search engine and is treated the same as a space.
  • Try different terms: There are many words to describe content. For example, television or TV. Try several different words and/or combinations, to vary the results.
