For example, instead of just searching by part number, try entering these search phrases into Google, we will use the part number "FB 220109" as our example:

  • Search for FB 220109 in Google and a large list of unrelated results are returned
  • Search for "FB 220109" in Google and a small list of results with the exact phrase "FB 220109" are returned
  • Search for "FB 220109" "nsn" in Google and the only results returned are those containing the NSN for "FB 220109"
