Not enough search results, try broadening your search:
Example: Prayer OR Healing (searches for either term)
Prayer OR Heal* (captures any form of the word, "heal, healing, heals, healed")
Too many results, try narrowing your search:
Example: Prayer AND Healing
(Prayer AND heal*) AND Christ* (captures any form Christian, Christianity, etc.)
Also, consider specific terms for topics:
Example: Education (use terms like: instruction, pedagogy, teachers, students, lessons, college, elementary, etc.)
Religion (use terms like: Bible, theology, Christianity, Islam, "sacred practices", clergy, pastor, minister, etc.)
Business (use terms like: leadership, economics, entrepreneurship, etc.)
Computer Science/Engineering (use terms like: "artificial intelligence," "programming language," robotics, etc.)
Using Google Scholar will limit your search of the web to scholarly materials and help you to avoid commercial and unreliable sources.
