Instructions and Tips:

You can enter search words in any order or use a natural language query (e.g. "boats and people in Taiwan"). Google Search will return only pages that contain all of the words you enter in your query. Thus, you can refine your search by adding more words.

Choose your keywords wisely. Try the obvious first, and try words likely to appear on the page you want. Be as specific as possible.

Google Search automatically performs an "AND" query, so there is no need to include that Boolean operator between your keywords.

Google ignores common words and characters (e.g., "where" and "how, certain single digits and single letters) because they tend to slow down your search without improving the results. Google will indicate if a common word has been excluded by displaying details on the results page below the search box.

If a common word is essential to getting the results you want, you can include it by putting a "+" sign in front of it. (Be sure to include a space before the "+" sign.)

Another method for doing this is conducting a phrase search, which simply means putting quotation marks around two or more words. Common words in a phrase search (e.g., "where are you") are included in the search.

Searches are NOT case sensitive.

Google Search will, when appropriate, search for your search terms AND words similar to them (such as "dietary needs" and "diet needs") and will highlight variants in your search results.
