How to make efficient searches.
Example: "Soul Winning"
By putting quotes around a set of words, you are telling Google to consider the exact words in that exact order without any change. A search for a single word with quotes around it will return a word search without synonyms.
Specific website search
Example: Soul Winning site:andresusa.com
Google allows you to specify that your search results must come from a given website. In this case a search for Soul Winning will be made only in the site www.andresusa.com
Example: Soul Winning -market place
Attaching a minus sign immediately before a word indicates that you do not want pages that contain this word to appear in your results. The minus sign should appear immediately before the word and should be preceded with a space so it will not be confused with a hyphenated word. Multiple words can be excluded by simply adding a space plus a hyphen then another word and so on. The example shows that a search will be made for Soul Winning, but all pages with market place will be excluded.
Example: Fair Soul *
The *, or wildcard, is a little-known feature that can be very powerful. If you include a * within a query, it tells Google to try to treat the star as a placeholder for any unknown term(s) and then find the best matches. The example shown will return a search with Fair Soul Winning, Fair Soul Searching, etc.
Example: Soul Winning 2009 OR 2010
The OR search allows either one of several words to be searched. Note that OR is all caps. Or can be substituted with the pipe symbol, |. The example will find information for Soul Winning for either 2009 or 2010, but no return will have information for both years.
