He searched for "perl to python migration" _with_ the quotes, you _without_
and therefore you got many hits containing the words "perl", "python" and
"migration" ("to" is excluded because it is too common) but not the phrase
"perl to python migration", i. e. "python to perl migration" would be a
hit, too.
