Statistically comparing different search engine results

Stats101Filter. I have (I think) a stats question, but little stats knowledge. Problem: The same library, and two different information retrieval systems - A and B - incorporating different metadata and search engines. I search the library with each IR system, using the same query. Is there a way to compare the similarity or difference between the different results sets I get from each system, and also assign this difference some statistical significance? [more inside]

Google query syntax query

Google syntax query. So: I want to be able to find all the links to Site X, while filtering out all internal links from within Site X. I'm using [link:sitex.org -site:sitex.org] as my query and get about 3 results. However I know there are thousands of links out there. Others seem to have had the same problem. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I want a text tool that can search documents for phrases within X words of a target.

Text search tool: I'm looking for a word processor or text tool, that will allow me to search documents for phrases centred about particular words. I want to be able to specify a 'window,' say of 15 words; and the tool will then return *all* the text that occurs 15 words either side of the search target. Example: if I searched this AskMe page for "fanboy" as a target, and set my window as '6,' I would expect to get - "aren't trying to show off their fanboy Pitchfork-esque indie creds. The less politics" - from alidarbac's question below, as one of the returns. Free/share/commercial-ware all acceptable. Many thanks!
