Ignore words when using Google search

Ignore words are so cool when you use Google Search. So many times I search for something on Google Search by only one word as search criteria and I get so many needless results. Fortunately there is a solution to ignore unnecessary terms.

For an example try to type Michael in Google search (let say you cant remember last name of Michael Moore). With no ignore words, you will receive search result with only one link to Michael Moore page, but there is so many links to Michael Phelps and Jackson (Slide 1.).

Now type to Google Search Michael -Phelps -Jackson. Hence, key mark is “-“, which in this case means less. Result will be shown without those two words (Slide 2.).
