  3. 3. Search: Power tips • Quotes on search string • In first example, search result will include pages where words NIIT and university are used separately. E.g. if NIIT does some project with Delhi university. But in second case it will show only those pages where both words appear together, so they will be about NIIT university only. 3 NIIT University “NIIT University”v/s
  4. 4. Search: Power tips • Minus sign • In first example most pages in the result will be about NIIT’s Raji pawar. But in second case you will be able to search those pages which have words Rajendra pawar but not NIIT. So you can search about some other person with same name. This technique is useful if you want to search about a marketing guru other than kotler or similar situations. 4 Rajendra Pawar Rajendra Pawar -NIITv/s
