Myth that Google search ignores "and"

Search for "michele and dani wedding" and then for "michele dani wedding". You get different results. At the time of writing, my website appears in third place if the "and" is present in the search but, without the "and", it doesn't appear until item fourteen.

This guy has written a book about searching Google and gets it wrong. On this website at www.informit.com, he states in "Ten Tips for Smarter Google Searches, tip number 3", "Speaking of the words "and" and "or," Google automatically ignores these and other small, common words in your queries."

NO, IT DOESN'T!

And Google even throws up a line on the search page, "The "AND" operator is unnecessary -- we include all search terms by default". Erm, Google, your search engine doesn't behave in the way you think it does!
