Google Advanced Search

We recently had an enquiry trying to trace a pub or hotel called The Spear and Pond.

A normal Google search on spear and pond resulted in hundreds of results - mainly to Britney Spears!

You can eliminate unwanted words from your search by using the Google Advanced Search facility.

1) At the bottom right of the Google Search screen, there's a link to Settings.

2) From the pop-up menu select Advanced Search.

3) Simply fill the form in & off you go.

It's very handy for searching someone's name or an address.
