Easy Setup Of Search Keywords

Ever since my mate Gavin pointed out the value of keyword searches to me a while back, I've become a keyword junkie. However, it's slightly tedious to set them up the way he showed me.

Well, here's a little video from Tekzilla explaining how to set them up much more easily.

In case that's not clear, the trick is ... on any site that has a search field, right click on the text box where you would normally enter the search string and choose "Add a keyword for this search". Then, just choose a keyword for it and save the bookmark.

You can then use that keyword as a prefix in the URL entry field at the top of your browser.

So, for example, if you've set up "d" as a keyword to search you could enter "d steatopygous" to decipher my cryptic blog name.
