Hi, I'm pretty new to WordPress and CSS and plugins and . . ., though I am not new to tech work. For instance, a Boolean search is nothing new, but only when it works, ya know?
But if I put keywords in as the author has described the google search wants--double quotes around exact phrases, spaces between words that are all needed, and OR between words where any one of them is needed--the search fails.
First, the keyword line won't even acceptquotation marks. When I hit [SAVE] and look at the keyword line again, everything from the first quotation mark on is just gone.
If I put in a string of OR's, I get NO resulting news, meaning it doesn't seem to get what "or" means.
Also, the widget seems to be ignoring my local setting. I put in Florida, but this seems to have no effect. Is that the norm?
And one other thing: the author says that Google ignores the keywords if there are both a topic and keywords. But he didn't leave a blank line in his select drop-down for topic, so there is no way NOT to have a topic.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Again, I'm new to WP and CSS, so please be particularly specific with any coding suggestions. Thanks!
