Combining Terms

Combining Terms to Refine your Search

One method you can use to refine your search is to look for combinations of terms.

For example, you may be interested in the effect of politics on education. Searching for either education or politics on their own will give you many more results than you can use, most of which will be irrelevant to you. Searching for both together, however, will return only those sites that mention both words. The search now has a context:

education in relation to politics

By providing your search with a context, the results are much more likely to be relevant to your needs.
