Top in Google in "Quotes", Not in Top 200 Without With a separate word search my site is vapor. DanB msg:730746 1:13 am on Mar 16, 2005 (gmt 0) A search on Google for: "X Y Z"
returns my site as number one in Google.
But a search for:
X Y Z
and my site doesn't show up in the first 20 pages (didn't check any farther).
What is this indicative of as far as SEO goes?

It's indicative that your site has X Y and Z next to each other and not many other sites do.
It's also indicative that your site isn't ranking as well for X,Y or Z than the 20 pages of sites above you!
Sounds like you need to get more inbound links!
Also, may sure that X, Y and Z are in the <title> and <h1> of the page that you want to do well for that search.... DerekH DanB msg:730748 9:52 pm on Mar 16, 2005 (gmt 0)
Got all those (title, H1 , etc) things already.
The thing I'm missing are inbound links. I don't think I have any yet.

Yeah, get inbounds. And while you're at it: make sure the anchor text in those inbound links contains X Y and Z. But not "X Y Z" for all those links - more variation would be nice. As in "Get X in Y for Z!" or "Lacking Z? Get a bigger Y for your X". You get it.
Also: optimizing anchor text for your internal links sometimes works wonders. Do not use "Home" for the 'back home' link on all your pages. Use "Home: X Y Z" or something similar.
