Hello darkhorse30, I totally agree with you, many people because of lack of knowledge simply dont reach what they are searching for.

I think this...

Basically I think people need some type of quick reference key dropdown to educate them on how to really find what they are looking for, otherwise most people just type it in the box, hit enter, and hope for the best

...is great idea, but search result page would be saturated with stuff so alternative solution would be micro site like donttrack.us with short guide on how to search more efficient.

I agree that finding more advanced search syntax would be helpful for DDG users. I know that the Devs are working on some page redesigns, maybe they will consider adding some type of function for more ready access to this information.

In the mean-time, hopefully this page will be of help to you: https://duck.co/help/results/syntax

Thanks!

Boolean operators could be accessible from the DuckDuckGo Plus extension.
