+ Operand for Google Search.
Still not hearing. Still not listening.
At least make the '+' operand an option for searches.
You say 'we listen' and that Double Quots is an improvement. THere is not direct comments on removing the '+' operand for searches.
No one from google acknowledges this directly.
imagine if ORACLE or DB2 said. "Hey - '*' is no longer used as a wild card for Search Strings. Because we have a new brand called ORACLE* (or DB2*).
Change it. You have have more than enough requests and posts to replace the '+' operand, as per a standard search syntax.
You still have '-' for not.
Just make it a customer option. (It's just like forcing people to look at BUZZ - we all know you have BUZZ+ first).
No answer has been helpful to date.
Comments to deflect and focus on 'alternatives' are not addressing the problem.
