    I've been trying to create a search string using google to search for all open employment listings for a certain city (reading, pa and surrounding towns). I've tried going thru google help, and haven't found anything useful. I want to exclude agencies, job sites, and get hits only for the business itself. While I"ve been partially successful, I still get over 26,000 results. This is the search string:
    inurl:employment 610- OR 484- OR "reading, pa" OR "wyomissing, pa" -agency -temp -temporary.
    The 610 and 484 is the area code, but since some businesses do not want phone calls, the phone# might not be listed, so I tried also using the city,state. problem is, I do not know how many "OR" commands google will accept (considering there are about 20 surrounding towns I would like to include). Using zip codes might, except I don't know how to do that. I also wish to include sites with the word "jobs" in the url, in addition to "employment". I need to reduce the number of results quite a bit, any ideas? thanks.
