The Google search engine receives a slight improvement for people who enter double quotes when placing their search queries. The tech giant said after evaluating user reviews that it was bold text on a Google search with words or phrases that a person places in quotation marks, as per blog post Thursday.
Specifically, the passages, lines of text that appear below the search results will now contain the part of the article directly in the search, making the specific word or phrase quoted in bold.
For example, if someone searches for ““In quotation marks, Google will return the results in bold for that specific phrase, showing where it appears in the article. This can speed up the search for users as they can see if the relevant information they are looking for is in the article before clicking on it.
Google said it hasn’t always done this in the past, as a phrase a person might be looking for may have appeared in the page menu. For some, the excerpt about the menu button may not be useful.
Bold is only available for desktop users. Google has not said if and when bold quoted queries will end up on mobile phones.
When asked for a comment, Google pointed to its blog entry.
