What Happened to Google’s Ten-Word Query Limit? — ResearchBuzz, January 19, 2005

Very good news for those of us, like myself, who from time to time need to do very long, complex queries – up till now Google’s 10 word limit has been a severe limitation when trying to get precision. Looking forward to trying some experiments to test this at or near the upper limit, for example trying to build a fairly accurate “ego” search that gets most of my assorted posts/contributions or reference to me, while missing references to other “Shannon Clarks” out there as well as other results such as ones for Claude Shannon or about the Lewis & Clark expedition etc.
