Google, yahoo,.... are no longer search engines. They are FIND engines.

The results include each word, no way to confine to an exact phrase.

What is the correct syntax for searching, and possibly finding, an exact phrase.

The browser Find control is designed to search the current page only. Your native browser Search field is designed to look for everything you dictate into the field in no particular order. You just have to refine your search with specialized symbols such as quotes, minus, @etc. You'll find these detailed at How to Refine Browser Searches

If you read up on the search engine syntax engine (try "advanced search expressions"), you can include and exclude any words and phrases you want. Use "your words here" to search for an exact phrase. Use + to include a +word, use - to exclude -thisword, and so on.
