Items listed only in the "Discussion" areas are excluded from results.
By default, only the title and first few sentences are searched. Unchecking "Search title & summary only" extends the search to the full body text.
Quoted phrases, wildcards, and standard search operators like

restricts searches for "Conan" to items from the blog "Poynter".
Examples of other operators follow:
items from the blog http://www.huffingtonpost.com/
• author:"Rupert Murdoch"
