Does anyone know if it's possible to do a search for an exact phrase, and if so how it's done? The instructions for searching don't seem to mention it
Search for keywords:
Place + in front of a word which must be found and - in front of a word which must not be found. Put a list of words separated by | into brackets if only one of the words must be found. Use * as a wildcard for partial matches.
First, i question the efficacy of most of the above search parameters. Does anyone really put a "+" in front of a word that "must be found" when they're running a search? And why would you input a list of words if you weren't looking for all the words in the list? Finally, I have no idea what Use * as a wildcard for partial matches
means. These instructions are nerdy at best. What i do know is that simply putting quotes around the exact phrase you're looking for works well on google, but that doesn't seem possible here. I was trying to find references to 'can't leave her behind' and it did find several exact matches but didn't prioritize them--the highest result it listed was
Leave My Kitten Alone - Little Willie John Bob talks ... Red & Georgia Tom Bob talks about the story behind The Lion Sleeps Tonight The Lion Sleeps Tonight
This is not a logical result!
