Google keeps returning unwanted results

I’m still frustrated with Google searches.



For example: I search for

BrandX over-ear BT headphones and I get webpages for other brands and BrandX doesn’t appear anywhere in the page.



Is there any way to get more precise results?



Any advice much welcome.

For Google to search for specific phrases by putting key words in quotation marks. For example, instead of writing:

Sony WF-S900 bluetooth headphones

Try this instead:

“Sony WF-S900” bluetooth headphones

Thank you, I tried that before but still got websites that won't show it anywhere. I'll try finding one and post it here.

Yes, it would be good to try out some examples, to see what the cause might be.

Instead of Google or Bing, try DuckDuckgo.com

Re: Google keeps returning unwanted results

Yes. most of the time we don't really get appropriate results for what we searched for, this is because:
we don't use quotes, whereas we should be using.
we don't use hyphens whereas we should that actually separates the keywords.



If you would be using a smart way of searching you will surely get the desired results.

You can always use the advanced search to get better results, good luck with that.
