    you should search keyword with following guidelines mentioned below:

    1 - Be specific
    2 - Be relevant
    3 - To the point
    4 - Take guess from suggested keywords
    5 - Use popular query term
    6 - Add informative word in long trail keywords

    There are many articles on the subject, so I'll only suggest a few tips:
    1. Use more than one keyword. 2-3 often work best. More can sometimes be helpful, but will often reduce the efficacy of the search.
    2. Choose the keywords carefully! It may seem obvious, but many keywords can mean different things (e.g. "Cannon" is a well known Japanese make, but it is also a piece of artillery and a name). If the first keyword is ambiguous, choose a second word to clarify your meaning (e.g. "cannon printer").
    3. You can also use the - operator to eliminate certain results. For example, "cannon -artillery" will exclude all the pages mentioning artillery (note that the double-quotes are not part of the search).

    4. If you are searching for a phrase (e.g. a line from a lyric, a bit of text from a book, error message on the computer), you can enclose it in double quotes (such as "once upon a midnight dreary") and Google will only return the pages containing that exact quote. I usually do this only if searching without the double-quotes didn't work, since minor differences in the text will prevent pages from being matched.
