20 Add a dash (-) before a word to exclude all results that include that word. This is especially useful for synonyms like Jaguar the car brand and jaguar the animal. jaguar speed -car

21 You can also exclude results based on other operators, like excluding all results from a specific site. pandas -site:wikipedia.org Do not give me results from Wikipedia, since my teacher wont let me use that website.

22 Include "site:" to search for information within a single website like all mentions of "Olympics" on the New York Times website. Olympics site:nytimes.com

23 Tip: Also search within a specific top-level domain like.org or.edu Results only from government websites: Olympics site:.gov Results only from educational websites. Olympics site:.edu

24 Use an asterisk (*) as a placeholder for any unknown terms. Use with quotation marks to find variations of that exact phrase. "a * saved is a * earned" is the search to find the missing word penny in the phrase a penny saved is a penny earned.
