Shari says: "I am trying to get a good search string for oil and gas engineers. Could someone help me out? I would prefer to search the US first. " (By the way it's better to post questions in the discussion section since you are more likely to get answers).

Shari,

I would like to hear more specifics about your search. I ran a sample search on Google X-raying linkedin. I added the word Texas, to find people who are in Texas (maybe others too), as an example. Here is the search string

texas oil gas +engineer -recruiter -CEO -manager -director site:linkedin.com -intitle:directory -intitle:answers -intitle:company

Lord! This is wonderful! I would probably change one word infront of engineer and it would be like - reservoir, geologist, geophysicist, project manager, etc. Thanks!

Hi Irma.  How would I make this specific to USA or specific to Texas so that overseas people would not appear?
