Karlee searched for “Edmonton Oilers” on the Internet with quotation marks.  Chase searched for Edmonton Oilers without quotation marks.  Did they get the same results?  Explain.

When you put quotation marks around the phrase, you're telling the browser to search for that specific character string.  Return results only that have that exact sequence of characters, including the space.  It's sort of analagous to the parentheses in math.   

 

With no quotation marks, you're telling the browser to find documents that have both the words, but they can be anywhere in the document.  They can be far apart, they can be in the other order, just as long as both words are somewhere in the document.
