Search Strategies from Google

Search Terms Finds pages with the following:
achondrite meteorite The words achondrite and meteor.
welding iron or brass Pages with welding iron or welding brass
“ground water” Will only find pages that have the phrase ground water. If the quotation marks were not used, pages that had water and ground in any order and separated by other words. For example, the search without quotation marks around the phrase would return a page with the following “There was water available in bottles. The ground was very dusty.”
oil -engine Finds web pages that mention oil, but not those mentioning engine oil. The minus sign is used to find web pages without a specific term.
cooking +oil Finds web pages with the term cooking and oil, but not pages with engine oil. The plus sign tells Google to match the terms exactly, thus, the results will not include pages with mineral oil.
educational ~media Searches for media and the word’s synonyms. This search would find web pages with the words educational media as well as multimedia, audio, film, television, etc.
U.S. trade deficit 1992..1998 Searches for web pages with the terms U.S. trade deficit in the years 1992 through 1998. The two periods are used to search through a range of numbers including dates.
Robert* Kennedy Returns pages that include Robert Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Robert Tom Kennedy. The * is a wild card and will find any word between (or lack of) between Robert and Kennedy. It can also be used with Oct* to find Oct. and October.
