      We too have had problems with exact expressions. The way we deal with it is by ANDing all the terms and then applying a filter to only keep the hits that contain the full expression in their long summaries.

      We are experiencing big problems with BOSS search. The results we receive for the exact phrase search are totally irrelevant.

      We have had this issue before, and that time it was solved by changing the DNS we were sending queries to. Here is the list of them:

       //98.136.114.52 - used it the whole summer
      //111.67.227.182 - The Korean one, we used it last
      //188.125.82.198 - working incorrectly since the 22nd of May
      //98.136.188.39 - working incorrectly since the 22nd of May

      http://yboss.yahooapis.com/ysearch/web - this is the service we use for performing searches

      Here is an example of the search:
      sending get request to http://188.125.82.198/ysearch/web?q="story of an hour by kate chopin and a"

      Encoded version: http://188.125.82.198/ysearch/web?q=%22story%20of%20an%20hour%20by%20kate%20chopin%20and%20a%22

      As you can see, the BOSS search ignores the quotes and provides the results which do not contain the exact matches.

      Please let us know the solution for this issue as soon as possible, as the service we provide depends on it.

      Thank you in advance!
