Three forms of searching are supported on eg:itself:
- the search field visible to the left in the page layout
- use of categories, [[Special:categories|a complete list of which is available] and which can be easily accessed by clicking on the category name of any categorized page
- use of tags, page name prefixes and directives, e.g. as of, list of, all, so that important meta information about pages is clearly advertised as such
Better eg:naming and eg:tagging drastically improve accuracy of eg:searching. A common technique is to search once, then use the most closely matched page and categories applying to it as a guide to finding exactly what you want.
