Such terms can be used on their own or combined with others to discover topics that may interest you. For example, use two phrases in an advanced search to narrow your results: consumer AND demand will provide a list of articles discussing the various issues surrounding the market demand and consumers, including how consumers affect market demand.
If you find far too many search results even after combining search terms, try altering and/or adding some terms. In the example above, I found over 241,000 results- but when I changed my search and added a third phrase (consumer AND demand AND advertising), I narrowed my results to just over 2,100.
