Default Searching Techniques

Is there a way to search a phrase? When I search it sees each word individually.

I've had more success in this sort of search if I use Google. i.e.

router triton problem site:routerforums.com

will return a list of posts that match ALL of the three search terms.
You could try using quotes around your search phrase:
"router triton problem"
but this doesn;t seem to work properly for me. Same for single quotes ''
If there's a how to on using an advanced search in vBulletin, I'd like to know.

Not exactly sure how it works here but without quotes search engines will look for all of the words but not necessarily in a particular order. If all of the words are present it will return that as a hit When you use quotes it interprets it as: find this exact phrase. So, if the article searched contained " My Triton Router has a Problem.", using your example, you would get a hit without the quotes but wouldn't with the quotes.

Again, I'm not an expert on search engines, just suggesting this based on my experience.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of the ability to direct Google to look only within routerforums by tagging the search with site:routerforums.com
VERY NICE
