The search engine’s normal state is to search through every page on the site for the keywords or phrases you’ve entered in the Search bar.
Search results are always presented in ranked order, meaning that a page with multiple mentions of Cooper would be considered higher in the list hierarchy (a “closer match”) than a page with only one mention. The placement of the word affects the ranking as well; a mention of Cooper in a Heading 1 title would appear before a mention formatted Heading 2.
