Google Search using the AROUND operator for proximity search

Google Search's AROUND() operator is a handy search operator to facilitate searching for terms close to each other. Note that the word AROUND must be in big caps and the number as the parameter sets the max distance between the two terms.

For example, a search term warren buffet AROUND(5) bill gates will return results having terms warren buffet and bill gates that are separated by 5 or less words. Note also that if Google can't find anything within the limit, it will just do regular ranking of the terms without the AROUND coming into play.
