I know that, I was pissed when that replaced the + that was easier.
But sadly, it's just not true anymore. Recently, I noticed that when
searching one of my "" enclosed words in a page result, they're simply
not present. And whatever you do, non alphanumeric characters are always
replaced by spaces and thus ignored.
Conversely, putting a - in front of a word does not guarantee anymore
that it won't appear, apparently.
It's okay, gives me motivation to try out others. And Google's still
good overall, only frustrating in non-consumer-friendly cases.

I bet that just put some Doubleclick ads on it and it will get higher,
