Attaching a minus sign immediately before a word indicates that you do not want pages that contain this word to appear in your results. The minus sign should appear immediately before the word and should be preceded with a space.
The words AND, OR, XOR and NOT will function as boolean operators in your query. By default, the query terms are considered to be joined with AND so it is usually not necessary to use. You may also use parenthesis '()' to control precedence of your operators.
