Google Advanced Search for More Precise Results

Did you know that Google has an Advanced Search
that allows you refine your Google searches for more
precise results?

The Advanced Search template (which can
be accessed from a link on regular Google) allows
researchers to search for or exclude specific
terms and phrases and restrict results by a number
of factors, including language, file type, usage rights,
domain, and more. For example, using the Advanced
Search mode, you could find information on Chinese
legal research, excluding Taiwan, in English on
openly accessible web sites from educational
institutions (domain = .edu).

The Advanced Search Tips on the web site provide
explanations and examples.
