"Lemme just type this word in my search here.. actually you know what? **** that word, i'm puttin' a dash before that mother ****** "

The point is to filter out results with that word. For example, if you wanted to buy an actual, physical wrecking-ball, but Miley's 			****		 is clogging the results, than you type "wrecking ball -Cyrus".

let's not forget about one of the best:
filetype:type (ex filetype:pdf)

Or... you know, I could have google just do it for me and not have to remember everything.
google.com/advanced_search

Usually, just using quotation marks is enough though.

This is called boolean logic. it works for all search engines. Except google. upon introduction of its "Ask" system, google wigs out when you do this. It works probably half the time now.
Good Luck
