    I'm building somewhat of a search engine and have been trying to find a
    list of blacklisted search terms. Words that I can exclude from the
    search, such as "and", "the", "a", etc. I've been looking forever and
    can't find anything, any idea where I can find something useful for
    this?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Ben,

    Try : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_words - there's a link at the
    bottom for some other sites that purport to provide 'stop-words' in
    various languages...

    Cheers !

    Try googling for "stopwords", that's what they're called.
