    Setting up query may work with SEDE. – Pandya Apr 19 '18 at 0:53

    Query is not needed for this. Search is enough. – Sarvabhouma Apr 19 '18 at 6:23

    Did you search first? – Sarvabhouma Apr 19 '18 at 10:49

You can simply search in top bar search. If you want more specific search like how many times an specific word is used by specific user then in search bar you can simply write "desired phrase" user:userId.

You need to replace "desired phrase" with whatever word or sentence you want to search and "userId" with specific id of the user which you can get by visiting user profile.


As said by @Triyugi Narayan Mani in their answer, there is no need of a query of this. It can easily found by search from top bar.

Visit How do I search. There are many search operators with which we can find desired word or a phrase easily.

Anyways, I found a data query with which we can find a word or phrase written by a user in all of their posts. Search posts by a user. Just a note, SEDE updates once in a week.

  • I think this also includes tag wiki. Btw, do you know the language used in SEDE? – Pandya Nov 13 '18 at 9:30
  • I don't know why this downvoted. Didn't I give the right query or what? – User9125 Nov 13 '18 at 10:37
