If you are looking for something of a particular file type, say a PowerPoint file, simply search, adult learning.ppt
If you want to find other sites related to one you are looking at, for example, other articles like the you are currently looking at, simply copy the article url and add related:  before it.

If you are shopping online and want to find items in a specific price range, simple search, digital cameras $200…$500 and Google will only show you cameras in that range.
