How can I search a saying, or a quote (I mean, real quote) in Google? For example, I want to search for any statement from The Supreme Court that has this keyword: the fact that. Is it possible?

    Which Supreme Court? – ale Oct 17 '15 at 15:20
  • any court in the world? I mean, if I don't specify which country, does it matter? – Ooker Oct 17 '15 at 15:23
  • If that's what you want to search against, that's fine. I don't know how useful that would be, though. Presumably you'd only see that phrase in documents from Supreme Courts (named as such) in English-using countries. – ale Oct 17 '15 at 15:26
  • I don't mind about that. – Ooker Oct 17 '15 at 15:27

To search for exact phrases, enclose them in quotes. For instance, this search seems to have returned some pretty good results:

united states supreme court "the fact that"

If you want to limit this to "official" pronouncements, you need to limit the site(s) searched using the site: operator.

So, to search that phrase on the official site for the U.S. Supreme Court, you'd use:

"the fact that" site:www.supremecourt.gov

You'll find a ton of useful information here: How to search on Google

  • I know that to find the exact phrase, enclose them in the quotation marks. What I mean is that only search in the official announcement of the court, not a random criticize to the court article which contains the fact that – Ooker Oct 17 '15 at 15:25

    You can limit the site that's searched, so if you have the site where the announcements are posted, use the site: operator. – ale Oct 17 '15 at 15:27
  • What you're really asking, then, is how to limit searches to "official" pronouncements. – ale Oct 17 '15 at 15:30
  • Hmm, good work around. I think this is the answer. – Ooker Oct 17 '15 at 15:32
