I suspect (but, as always, cannot be sure because the algorithms are not
public) that commas make no difference. and have no impact. The page is
essentially converted into a list of words. This excludes punctuation,
unless search engines have evolved to behave differently. The order of words
matters, on the other hand, because information is retained which expresses
how one words is related to another in the series. It's a power feature
where adjacency tests lead to more contextual results.

Hope it helps,
