TIPS: Try just 2-4 keywords. Avoid “fluff” words like impact and effect
Why? Words such as impact are used often and in multiple contexts, so you are not likely to get relevant results.
Why? Search engines and some databases can guess what you mean, but they may only return what you put in the search box.
