Nesting keeps concepts that are alike together and tells a search engine to search certain terms first. Use search boxes or parentheses to group concepts when you use two or more connectors.

In the example below, we have combined Celtic or Irish or Ireland with religion or mythology by using the AND connector. The search will retrieve items containing at least one word from each of these two concepts.
