Hi @Onlinetrouble s


No, you can't...Keywords can't contain any non-standard characters like: ! @ % , * \

Special characters are ignored by Google's search engine, so even if you for example search for my query/widget

Google will replace special characters with a space.

So the above query in bold will be my query widget


So the below will all match the original with forward slash query string


[my query widget]

"my query widget"

+my +query +widget


Hope it helps
