441,000 HITS? HOW TO NARROW YOUR SEARCH
Computers are dumb. This is where you get to be smarter by learning how to use it.

Adding words narrows a search. Let's say we are really trying to find if there is a prostate cancer support group in Cincinnati. Okay, here is what we put in the box: PROSTATE CANCER SUPPORT GROUPS CINCINNATI

Here is the start of what Google will give.

screen save of top of google page after search for prostate cancer support groups in cincinnati

I have added an arrow to point to the top return in your search.

Note the CATEGORY and the SPONSOR has changed.

Also note that Google found 1,810 pages. Do they all refer to PCa support groups in Cincinnati?

No. It found every page where those five words appeared. So a page that says (and note the typo), "Born in Cincinnati, Arkansas, Joe has no means of support. You'll find him prostate on his couch, watching rock groups. He acts like a Taurus but he is a Cancer." Yes, it will even pick up typos.
