Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I am needing tips and suggestions for narrowing down search results within Google.   For example, how can I use Google to display results for academic writing jobs which pay for thorough papers about a specific topic such as childhood obesity and its causes?   I have tried the + sign which seems to help in setting up the search term parameters.  However, I think there might be other search term strings which would be fruitful to try out.  

            Any shared thoughts or feedback to this question will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

            George

Here is how I do it.

Go to Google and type in Childhood obesity and causes.

Look at the page that comes up

Consequences, Parenting, Prevention and so on.

Then start searching on these subtopics.

I can narrow down a search very quickly this way.

probably this article gives you a start but I know there could have other better articles on Internet (which you need to use better search techniques to search for it)

Using "abc" will return result that must have abc. This one is helpful. I am sure there are others.

Or,  given your requirements for more academic results,  look at Google Scholar as the basis for your search.
https://scholar.google.com
Use the advanced search page.
You can then use the normal boolean refining tools that Google provides for all searches.
