Advanced Search:this+that-this-that=search dementia

Searching for spending statistics by gender and age: consumer spending+age-family-income-region gets a two-year old article from Advertising Age. After more than a few unwanted words are entered in Advanced Search, Google's algorithm forgets what the primary wanted words are. It's not just Google. Bing does the same thing. I do sometimes get a kick out of searching for...oh, Madame Curie and seeing an ad telling me I can "buy Madame Curie on eBay."
