Tech Tip : Remove Clutter From Your Search Results

If you ever find that you’re getting unwanted search results, you can quickly and easily narrow down the list by using the minus sign.

Here’s a classic example; let’s say that you’re interested in natural history and wanted to know more about a jaguar.

However, the (organic) results may display local Jaguar dealerships. You can modify your search with a negative keyword like this :

Jaguar -car.

Or even use several modifiers like this to suppress even more irrelevant results, like this …
Jaguar -car -vehicle -sales -garage

… and there you have it … more accurate search results.
