I am trying to search for the exact term work@play but when I try using Google, Bing (etc) they ignore the @. Using quotes doesn’t help. Any suggestions?

    Are there any search engines that will search for "@"?

    Google specifically state that their searches ignore most punctuation, including the '@' symbol. You're not the only person annoyed about it...

    What specifically are you trying to search for? When I use double quotes around the entire word my searches on Google work just fine.
