    I want to search Google to get news items about a website, excluding all links from the website itself. The site is fairly active, so a simple news search for WebsiteName.com is going to result in 100 links for the site itself. What I want are news stories that mention WebsiteName.com.

    Tried searching for the site and then putting "-WebsiteName.com" in source location, thinking the minus sign would exclude the site. Doesn't seem to work.

    Any ideas?
