Truth Rules

A blog for fans of Clay Aiken. It may take a while but in the end, truth will win out over lies. Keep it clean, no threats ... and if I don't like what you say I own the delete key.

Tweak your Google blog search

We know that if we want Clay Aiken news we can use Clay Aiken +news in our search but did you know that you can eliminate certain words too?

For example, there are certain satire (spoof) sites that some of us would rather not see and the Google filters don't eliminate them. You can do it by using the minus sign (-).

Simply type your search name, we'll use Clay Aiken, minus what you don't want to see. Yes, you can exclude multiple words.

Examples:
Clay Aiken -fraud
Clay Aiken -spoof -fraud
Clay Aiken -spoof -fraud -Smith

Just make sure there is no space between the minus sign and the word(s) you want excluded.
