With Google I can do exact match searches like this:

"exact match phrase"

What if I would like to include double quotes like this?:

" "exact match" phrase"

Is this possible? Can I escape somehow?


Google ignores punctuation, so this isn't possible.

That is not possible, but what you could do instead, because using the quotes will give you an exact match is: "exact match phrase" "exact match" "phrase"

Don't forget that you can also use the +/- modifiers to force results to include words. It might be useful to combine this with a variation of RazorSharp's solution above.
