Google allows you to do quite a bit more than just use its ‘default settings’ to search the whole of the web. You can tailor your searches to filter your results more carefully: for instance, if you only want to search one particular website – or filter it out of your results completely.
Perhaps the default Google results you’re getting for a query are too broad, or maybe the search function on a large site isn’t working as well as it should. Narrowing down Google’s results to only search within one specific site could be the answer.
Alternatively, perhaps you want to remove a site altogether from your Google results. This can be helpful if Amazon is dominating the results for a shopping term, but you want to see the alternatives. Or if you want to read recent news about a popular topic, but you want to filter out one particularly prolific publisher.
