goog drop plus

that’s not “goog plus” but the goog search “plus operator” and have replaced it with “goog verbatim”

in the past, we provided users with the “+” operator to help you search for specific terms.

A couple of weeks ago we removed the “+” operator, encouraging the use of the double quotes, which are more likely to be used correctly.
