The question we received from a user:


Hi,

Please double-check how you guys are doing the allintitle search. I believe you are using quotes that are incorrect. Please refer to this article written by the creator of KGR himself and in this part in particular.

"You type in allintitle: and the search phrase with no spaces and no quotes. Don’t enter the quotes because that will lower the number of results which will throw off your calculations."


And here is our answer to this action:

We use the “search term” to force an exact-match search. By using this, we can refine results for ambiguous searches, or exclude synonyms when searching for single words.


Example:

  • If we use the operator allintitle: "best electric shaver for white men to get the allintitle result -> will show results containing all of the exact terms “best electric shaver for white men”.

  • If you use the operator allintitle: best electric shaver for white men to get the result -> will show results containing best” and “electric“ and “shaver” and “for” and “white” and “man”.

  • So if you don’t use the quotes -> the result of allintitle: best electric shaver for white men and allintitle: best electric shaver for white men will be the same -> this will not make sense because 2 search terms have different meanings.

Result of allintitle: best electric shaver for white men
