Google makes any word with a "+" prepended
a required wrd in the
search. To preclude a word prepend a "-" to it.
The latter doesn't work - or at least, it didn't a while ago. I was
searching for some music typesetting software called "SMUT". I'm sure
you can imagine the false positives; I started adding terms like -pussy
-beaver to my search to try to suppress them, which simply didn't work.
And when I reported it to Google, did they fix their bug? No; they
added "typesetting" to the list of search targets that suppressed the
pr0n page hits when searching for "smut" (apparently regardless of the
search including terms explicitly incidating that the seeker does not
want them). They didn't seem to grasp the idea of actually obeying the
user's stop words, presumably preferring to make users write to the
directly to be able to find what they're looking for.
