Step 4 (optional). Exclude non relevant keywords to avoid noise in the search results:
Repeat the same steps by typing the keyword you want to exclude in the search bar and selecting it from the suggestions bar to add a second line linked to the previous one with an AND operator. Click the AND operator to transform it into a NOT operator.
