Sometimes a simple search in Google brings up too many results that aren't relevant to what you want. For example, if you're searching for info on the wild cat breed of jaguars, you don't want to wade through search results about Jaguar automobiles too.
Here's the trick for how to NOT search for a word:
Google has added a new navigation panel to the left-hand side of most results pages. Many of the options have been available for while (I blogged about it in The Ides of October 2009 "Filter & Refine Results Using Google's Search Options Side Panel"), but was originally very subtle, and many people didn't notice or use them. Now Google has re-designed the navigation panel with icons & bright colors to bring attention to the ability to refine search results by types of content.
Google is asking people to try out its new search infrastructure code-named "Caffeine". Most everybody won't notice a major difference in search results, but just the act of testing Caffeine will help Google engineers speed up and improve search algorithms.
