Exact Phrase Search

An "exact phrase" search searches on all the keywords appearing together in the article as a single string of characters, just as they are typed.

For example, if you search on "butch cassidy" and use an exact phrase search, then the results will include all articles that have the two words appearing together in the article. That is, they have the 13-character string "butch cassidy", including the space in between the two words. This type of search is essentially the same as a search in Google using quotes around the phrase.

If an "exact phrase" search is not used, then articles are searched for having all the individual keywords, but not necessarily appearing together in the article. For example, if you search on "butch cassidy" and do not use an exact phrase search, then the results will include all articles that have the both the words ("butch" and "cassidy") appearing anywhere in the article, not necessarily together.
