Using EzineArticles Advanced Search

Go to or you can access the Advanced Search right on the homepage by clicking Search!

Type keywords into the search box, for example: “article writing.”

Narrow your search:

  • By Category – Selecting a specific category from the Category dropdown box, for example: Writing and Speaking: Writing-Articles.
  • By Expert Author – Type in the author’s name in the Expert Author Name box if you would like to search for a specific Expert Author.

Modify your results by using the Match option:

  • All Words – Find articles that use all of the keywords or search terms in any order.
  • Exact Phrase – Find articles that use all of the keywords or search terms in the exact order it was entered in the search box.
  • Any Words – Find articles that use any of the keywords or search terms you have typed into the search box collectively or individually, e.g. “article,” “writing” and “article writing.”

Target your results by deciding what parts of an article you want to search:

  • Search Article Title and Body
  • Search Article Title Only
  • Search Article Body Only
  • Search Article Keywords

Filter your search based on article length by entering your preferred word count into the box and selecting:

  • Less Than
