If you use '+' at the start of a word, that word will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry +Potter
Search results will contain 'Potter'.
If you use '-' at the start of a word, that word will be absent in the search results.
eg. Harry -Potter
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between 2 words, then both those words will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry AND Potter
Search results will contain both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
NOTE: AND will only work with single words not phrases.

Search results will contain just 'Harry', or just 'Potter', or both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.

If you use 'NOT' before a word, that word will be absent in the search results. (This is the same as using the minus symbol).
