Not Operator

The not operator describes search criteria which must not be true in order for an entity to match.

For example: To search for articles about hacking that were not written by Andy Greenberg or Joseph Marks, query:

type:Article title:"hacking" not(author:or("Andy Greenberg","Joseph Marks"))

To search for articles about hacking that were not published by the New York Times:

type:Article title:"hacking" not(pageUrl:"nytimes.com") sortBy:date

Note that NOT can be used to negate any query expression, including expressions containing the OR operator.
