Selections are the key to using The Business Card Club effectively to find cards for people and services. It's worth spending a little time learning how to use them to customise your view of the cards we hold in our database.
Most websites provide some kind of search feature for you to find the data they contain. In most cases this is a simple text-based search; if the site contains the text you type it will return a page or a choice of pages for you. However, a simple misspelling on your part makes such a search useless; few systems are smart enough to detect the common errors people make when spelling names and common words.
We approach searching differently. Our search mechanism presents lists of locations and categories dynamically, telling you as you type or click how many cards will result from your current selection. You can even save your selections to use over and over again.
For example, if you are a keen diner you might like to be able to show cards for all the restaurants in your local town. You can set up a search for this, giving as much information as you need to narrow the search to just those cards. In this case you would specify the country, the town and the tag "restaurant". You'd then give the selection a name like "Restaurants in
The Search page works interactively with you, only presenting information when there is at least one card matching the criteria you give. In many cases you can do the entire job just using the mouse, or you can speed things by typing the initial letters of a word and the system will look for matching items as you type.
