  • Surround a phrase with double quotes (") to search for the whole phrase.
  • Prefix a word with + if all search results must include the word.

Examples:

  • one two

  • +one two
    All search results must include one, and will rank higher if they also contain two.
  • +one -two
    All search results must include one, but none will include two.
