Not everything you find on the web will end up being cited in your thesis, but that's okay, there are still a lot of uses for what you find:
1) Make slight tweaks to your keywords to see if the results change. For example see how the results differ for these searches:
2) Just because some or most of your search results are irrelevant doesn't mean they all are. You only need to find one relevant results from a search to make it worth your while! Each of these relevant articles was buried in irrelevant results about working with dementia patients
You can search through a global database of theses (Master's programs) and dissertations (PhD programs). Keep these tips in mind!
