    So assuming these given factors.. Who would show up for #1 organically on google.

    Lets say there are no authority sites on the first 5 pages for google for an exact search for the keyword "home business success"

    ME:
    Lets assume that I have a page that is optimized perfectly where I have the keyword "home business success" exactly as is showing first on the title.
    Meta keywords: home busines success,
    Description, H1, body (mention 1-2). etc.
    As far as inbound links, I have articles, videos, social media, that only is optimized for that one keyword too linking to my page..

    THE SEARCHER:
    A searcher now types in the keyword "home business success" as a broad search in google but i'm optimized for the "exact match" and now authority sites are showing up for the broad match..

    Will I win the number 1 spot on google if someone does a broad search on "home business success" when i'm optimized for the exact match and someone else isn't?

    hope this makes sense!

    If I'm not mistaken, exact match means that the user search for the exact keyword. In your case, if the user search for "home business success" (without quotes) and ""home business success"" (with quotes), the results would be the same.

    Broad Match = Keywords Here
    Phrase Match = "Keywords Here"
    Exact Match = [Keywords Here]

    Hi

    I just did a search for this phrase in Google with quotes and without quotes and the results are totally different. Check it out for yourself.
