There is more to search engines than just typing words into the search box. The Google Help: Cheat Sheet has some tips that can help you narrow down what you're looking for.
If, for example, we were to use the words pacific plans in our search, we would get more than 15,000,000 hits.
-inc (meaning NOT those that have the word inc, e.g., Pacific Plans, Inc.) and hits will go down further to around 100.
"pacific plans" and you get about 30 hits.
Pacific Plans - Broken Dreams. What's going on? Could it be that there's a conspiracy to prevent those looking for the blog from finding it?! Calm down. It's very likely that the blog's owners just forgot to indicate "Philippines" as their location in their user profile. And that's why the blog doesn't show up: because you're looking only for "pages from Philippines." But it does show up as the fifth hit (along with about 200 others) if you click on "the web."
- use "quotation marks" when you're looking for a "specific phrase,"
- add a minus sign (-) if you want to exclude a word (e.g., rizal -jose leads directly to Rizal Library),
- click on "pages from Philippines" if you want to limit results to Filipino websites, and
