Most search engines will recognize the use of quote symbols to mean that the user wishes to search for a phrase. However, that is not the case with our forum's search utility. If you search for either "four minutes" or four minutes, then you will get the same results which includes posts containing both words, four and minutes, either together or separate.

However, you could use Google to run a more advanced search for just the phrase "four minutes" by using the following search syntax, site:thisisms.com "four minutes"

I hope that this was helpful.
