Hey everyone....
I have a question about google search algorithm for stopwords.
The words "to", "be", "or", "not" are stopwords, at google's search engine...
But if we give:
to be or not to be
we will have anwsers just like giving
"to be or not to be"
Why this happens? I mean, that as all the words are stopwords, and the whole sentence is not at "", all the words should be ignored and nothing comes back as a result..

Last, the related searches like (for the query in ""):
hamlet, interpretation, macbeth, romeo and juliet etc.
are because of this... right?

I think these are stop words when they are used alone, but if they are used in combination to each other, they become the keywords.

looks like you are right..
[main question :)] But then, why the difference between the sentence into "", or without ""? [/main question :)]
The results are exact the same, except that in the 1st search we have also the related searches, and some videos.

Any ideas?

Listings with quotation marks shows results with keywords next to each other. It's like telling the search engine that you want the keywords in the exact order as you typed them in.
