Exact Phrase

Have you ever encountered any situation where you are looking for a particular phrase or sentence in your search results?

To address this issue, which most of us face quite often the exact phrase option of Google search can be used.

Here you need to mention your search query in double quotes over google search engine to get the desired results.

For example, if I search “Best Digital Marketing Agency in Delhi” it will show only those results which will have the keywords, Best Digital Marketing Agency in Delhi. 

Hence it helps you to target exact words in your search results.

Excluded Words

Many a time we search for a few things which are spelt similar across industries, like anchor or chips or any other word.

In such situations, you can avoid confusion and get the most targeted results by using the excluded words feature over google.

To understand it even better, let us take an example if we search a knife-kitchen, google will showcase results other than kitchen knife that we use for cooking purposes.

In this way, it excludes a particular phrase or word from your search results and helps you get filtered results.
