Google is a primarily a particularly good search engine. They screwed thousands of people by withdrawing their programmer API (Application Programming Interface) and now won’t let anyone use it with a program, only a browser.
You can get at other limiters with Google Advanced Search checkboxes, then look at the HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) query generated and learn to compose it directly yourself.

In the olden days, when Google redirected someone to your site as the result of a search, they would include the list of keywords used to find you in the HTTP header. This would help you understand how people were searching for you. They have stopped doing this. However, now you can get a summary of this information using the Google Webmaster Tools.
Google is a fairly well behaved company given the huge temptation it has knowing so much about what everyone is doing. When the founders lose control of the company, Google will likely become extremely evil. My current complaint with them is they have a short attention span, probably a side effect of the youth of its employees. They come up with an interesting concept, develop a proof of concept, turn it loose on the public, then abandon it. They don’t properly finish, support or polish their works.
