Use quotation marks
Use quotation marks to find words which must appear adjacent to each other, for example,
"rental houses in Brazil" Otherwise, the search results will include the word
rental, houses, in, and the word Brazil, but not necessarily in that order. The words may
appear anywhere, and in any order, within the document.
"rental houses in Brazil"
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.
Note: A phrase must be contained within quotation marks. Leave no spaces between the plus or minus sign and the term.
+"rental house" +Brazil
Use field searches
Field searches allow you to create specific for words that appear in a specific part of a document. A field search can be performed on body text (body:), title text (title:), alt text (alt:), meta description (desc:), meta key words (keys:) or URL (url:). The field name should be in lowercase and immediately followed by a colon. There should be no spaces between the colon and the search term.
Note: The field searches can only be followed by a word or phrase. Phrases must be contained within quotation marks.
