I'm actually trying to google some information on real, honest-to-goodness stack overflow error that is happening deep inside an app, and all I'm getting is unrelated topics from stackoverflow.com or that mention stackoverflow.com. We need a new code word to stay one step ahead of the game.
-site:stackoverflow.com -"stackoverflow.com" in your google search :)
Try asking a question on Stack Overflow. That is what it's there for.
Doing a google search for "stack overflow error" actually only returns 1 so.com reference: http://www.google.com/search?aq=f&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=stack+overflow+error. Perhaps your search itself is flawed. What language and platform are you working on and what is the specific stack overflow error you are getting?
if you just search for
stack overflow, youll probably get only references to the site. I just searched for
stack overflow java
stack overflow c++
and both queries turned up plenty of legitimate discussions on the issue. Sounds like your queries can use some refinement.
Try some of the following search tips:
- Replace the weak search term with a characteristic identifier, e.g. "StackOverflowException"
- Use an entire phrase from an error message, e.g. "stack overflow in line 0"
- Combine the weak search terms with refining search term, e.g. "stack overflow" "internet explorer"
