Use Quotation Marks in a Web Search

Using quotation marks when doing an internet search limits the search to only list items that have exactly what is enclosed in the quotations.  This limits the scope of the search.

Open a web browser and a search engine.

Type in your search phrase: job listings waco tx receptionist

*notice not all of the results have the word receptionist in them

quotes search 1

Search phrase: job listings waco tx "receptionist".

Notice all of the results have the word receptionist in them.

quotes search 2

 

If using quotation marks around multiple words, the words inside the quotation marks must be in the order you want them to appear in the results.
