As I am learning all the bash shortcuts, I've found that moving forward and backward by words are not very useful. I don't normally want that.
Moving forward and backward by spaces seem to be more valuabel.
You can add these lines to ~/.bash_profile
bind '"\C-f":vi-fWord' bind '"\C-b":vi-bWord'
And you can use Ctrl+F and Ctrl+B to move forward to the next space or backward to the previous space. Reference
