What is a Coupon Search Engine and how is it different from, say, Google, or other coupon search engines?
There are three major differences between the Grocery Coupon Search Engine and all other search engines out there. These are, first, the search engine comes with instructions for use, second, it is highly selective and focused on grocery and restaurant coupons only, and third, it is social and extensible.
Grocery Coupons Search Engine Comes With Instructions For Use
Well, you are looking at the instructions right now! The Coupon Search Engine is based on the Google search technology. It has the familiar look and feel of Google search. But have you ever seen Google instructions for use of the Google search engine?
The instructions to use Google are there somewhere on the Google website, but it is difficult to explain everything to everyone when you are an all-purpose search engine like Google.
In contrast, we can provide the basic instructions for using Grocery Coupons Search Engine in just a few sentences here.
For example, you do not need to enter any of the word "coupon", "coupons", "deal", etc. So if you are looking for organic milk coupons or organic milk savings, it is enough to just type "organic milk" into the search box. This is because the search engine is highly specialized.
Second, for efficiency, be prepared with a list of items you need, as well as the quantity of coupons you need. If you need more than one coupon, you may be able to download them from different sites that come in the search results. There are really no limits as far as printing the coupons. Whether you will be able to use all of the coupons in one trip depends on your grocery store policy which is mentioned here: how to extreme coupon.
Grocery Coupons Search Engine Is Highly Specialized
The search engine only covers sites that specialize in offering discounts and coupons for grocery stores, and restaurants. That way, in your search for coupons, you will not be distracted by other information that is not needed during your search for deals and coupons. You can just use Google if you need information about a certain product besides the coupon information.
The downside of the search engine that is so highly specialized on just hunting for coupons, is that it may miss some couponing sites that mushroom from time to time.
But this is where the extensibility and the "social" nature of the grocery coupons search engine comes in.
How To Suggest Extensions To The Grocery Coupons Search Engine
It is relatively straightforward to add additional sources of coupons to the search engine. It is also easy to seek help with the usage of the search engine. By simply visiting the engine's Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/grocerycouponssearchengine, you can suggest new sites to be added to the search engine. You may have to "Like" the page to gain access to posting your suggestions there.
For example, if you have expected a certain couponing site in the search results, and that site does not show up, you can suggest that site to be included.
Also, if you have questions about using the engine, you can ask questions there. Somebody from the search engine, or one of the search engine users will be able to answer the question for you.
So, go ahead, try out and bookmark the Grocery Coupons Search Engine page, and its Facebook page, and keep coming back to the search engine every time you need the grocery coupons for your family grocery shopping trip or restaurant outing.
