The answer to your question depends on the type of search engine and the type of search a user enters. Exact phrase searches are searches where the users' input string must be found precisely as it is typed in a page to return as a result. Most search engines have this as an option (it can be done by enclosing the phrase in quotation marks), but some, like AltaVista, default to exact phrase matching.
