search engine phrase search:

Different ways of putting together search terms can change the results. Typically search engines will assume certain phrases within a simple series of words. You can often manipulate assumptions by setting off phrases you intend for search engines to understand. For example, the expression, enterprise and economic development, is about of two processes that you may want to know about separately but a search engine may not see the word development attached to the word enterprise as it might to the word economic.

Copy the expression enterprise and economic development and use it to search. (You Google the Web with the search engine provided below.) Next, set the expression inside quotation marks and search again to see if you get different results.

The following suggested search terms for you to also copy and paste are provided to further demonstrate how using quotation marks with search engines can change results.

define economic development

"define economic development"

define enterprise development

"define enterprise development"
