Re: Excluding shopping pages when searching the Web withGoogle



fixed

John,

-Cart works well, thanks for that!

I do find it ironic though that you can limit your Google search to just
shopping by using a tab; but you can't eliminate shopping somehow
without the minus operator.

You can add -cart to your search queries to omit pages with the work
cart on them. You can do that for multiple terms.

The minus operator can also exclude sites: -site:amazon.com omits
Amazon.com from search results. So does -amazon.com, BTW, but that will
also filter out sites that merely refer to Amazon as, say, a place to
purchase.

Bryan,

You might try the advanced search. I haven't used it in a while but
in the past you could enter words to omit. For example exclude sites
with 'best price' in their search. It really helps cut down on the
clutter. Not perfect though.

Subject: [PCTECH] Excluding shopping pages when searching the Web with

Google

Is there a way to exclude shopping pages when using Google to search
the web? For example, I often Google a string including the words
"MC9090 scanner", which is a common barcode scanner here at ECHO; and
the top pages are all shopping pages when I'm looking for
troubleshooting, reference, tips and techniques, etc. types of pages.

Thanks in advance for any input.
