Google quotations have become a lot more useful if you're looking for the exact spot where a word appears on a page. It might not take long to discover the appropriate sentence.

There are limitations. When you search using quotations, you may get hidden results (such as meta description tags) or only appear in title links and page addresses. If the mentions are too distant from one another, you might not see them all in the sample. Bolded mentions will usually only appear on desktop, and they will rarely appear for specialized searches (such as image searches and video boxes).

The change was described by the corporation as a response to criticism. In the past, it was hesitant to use quotations in response to these queries because the texts they produced were often unintelligible. This is a recognition that people who search using quotations are more interested in finding specific words than reading site descriptions.

I went to tools-preferences-substitutions and created a shortcut (I replaced the two hypens with ) but its infuriating that the finest punctuation mark needs a workaround lol.
