If you don’t know how to exclude words from Google search, we are going to help you out in this guide. Without a doubt, Google is the most used search engine worldwide. However, when we perform a search on Google, the giant search engine shows us a lot of results from the same site that do not interest us. Therefore, we are going to show below a simple trick to exclude certain words or pages from Google search results.
This way, we can tell Google to not show the results from some particular websites or to avoid showing us results containing certain words. For example, if we want to search for information about a public figure or company and we do not want Google to show us the results of Wikipedia, the solution is here.
How to exclude words from Google search?
If what we want is to exclude certain terms or keywords in Google search results, what we have to do is write our search words and then add a minus sign followed, without spaces, by the word we want to exclude. For example, if we want to search in Google for cooking recipes for sauces but we do not want to get results for tomato sauce, it will be enough to write in the Google search engine:
- recipes sauces -tomato
This way Google will not show us any results for tomato sauce recipes.
If what we want is to exclude all the results of a search for a certain domain, the process is the same. Lets’s say you are going to buy an iPhone case and don’t want to see results from Amazon search this:
- iPhone case -site:amazon.com
