To obtain more specific search results, try using the following tips:
Use Multiple Words
Using multiple words will return more refined results than a single word. For example, typing dog racing will return more relevant results than typing just racing.
Use Appropriate Capitalization
Capitalize proper nouns, and remember that lower-case words will match any case. For example, typing house will return all documents containing the words house, House, and HOUSE. Typing House, however, will instruct the search engine to look only for the capitalized word.
Use Quotation Marks
Use quotation marks to find words which must appear adjacent to each other, for example, "Mentone race course." Otherwise, the search results will include the word Mentone, race and the word course, but not necessarily in that order. The words may appear anywhere, and in any order, within the document.
Use Plus (+) or Minus (-)
Use a plus sign when your search term or phrase must appear in the search results. Use a minus sign to indicate undesirable term(s). The plus sign tells the search engine that a certain word or phrase is required in the search results, and a minus sign indicates that a word or phrase must be absent in the search results. For example, typing +Sandringham +sea +baths will return more relevant results than typing just Sandringham sea baths.
Note: A phrase must be contained within quotation marks. Leave no spaces between the plus or minus sign and the term. i.e +"Sandringham sea baths"
