Has anyone ever heard of this. I read an article I found at Redgage which tells people to do a search with quotes around their search. Let me give you an example.
I go to google.com to do this search without quotes: earn money online and these were the results: 152,000,000 for earn money online.
Then I did a search for the same phrase with quotes: "earn money online" and these were the results: 1,750,000
I have a few websites I created and today I took the time to add the quotes to each individual keyword. I chose two websites I have created and I have a free hit counter on both of them. I will keep track of the results and if it works to getting indexed higher to search engines I will let all of you know.
Has anyone practiced this method? And if so do you feel it has made a difference?
I'm very curious if this is true.
I think you are misunderstanding the use of quotes in search engines.
Using quotes around a phrase in Google means that it will search for the exact phrase, where as normally it will do a much broader search, for example,
a search for
could bring up a site which has the following text
My prefered games platform has always been the PC.
However "PC Games" would only bring up text such as
I prefer PC games to consoles.
Putting quotes around the text in your hubs will not give you any SEO benefit, and may put off your readers!
Oh man, I thought maybe they meant it would help me get my URLs indexed higher than others. I understand.
Do you know if it would hurt my URLs being indexed? I'll leave the quotes in the keywords to the two website keywords I tweaked. Either way I'll let you know if I see an increase with traffic. Thank you
lol, broad vs exact search

It might not hurt your rankings necessarily, but it won't give them any SEO benefit.
