An "s" Makes This Much Of A Difference?
Posted 09 February 2004 - 02:04 AM
1. Am I wasting my time then and should switch to no "s" or a different word all together?
2. For many terms, WordTracker and Overture show much different results, why is this?
3. By chance, will my "affordable web designers" ever show up in just "affordable web designer" even though I have an "s".
It will be a pain to go back to all my link partners and ask for a switch to just take off an "s", but I will if I have to.
Anyone have any suggestions on what I should do? Thanks.

By the way, great Nitty-Gritty report Jill, bought it a few days ago!

1). WordTracker differentiates singular and plural. Overture usually shows singular.
2). Overture's tool can tend to be inflated - quite often due to people searching their own rankings.
3). Hopefully! I don't have an answer for that. :turned:
I think your safe with your link partners. It shouldn't really matter whether you have an S at the end or not. Others might provide better detail for you.

Wordtracker can help you track down the importance of the singular and plural versions. A free way is to use Google Adwords. You can set up an account and get information on the relative traffic without having to pay anything.

If Overture is not reliable - any suggested ap for french terms (wordtraker apparently does not do them)

I tried to load a section of the image of the Adwords page, but there seemed to be a problem this morning with a jpg file of 96 kb.
The relevant data were as follows:
It also seemed to work with accents:
I hope that's helpful.

Here is a stupid questions - How do you get that info? I have never used AdWords

You can find the Adwords section of Google via the following link:
Just start off by that "Click to begin" button under the Sign Up Now phrase. You then proceed as if you are creating an ad and you will have to create a simple one. You then specify the keywords you wish this ad to appear for. It's very user-friendly and eventually you ask to see the estimate for the keyword campaign and it gives you relevant data including the information I gave above. You are not required to give any personal data.

Most search engines will treat the singular and plural versions of the phrase as separate. Therefore you cannot hope that a SE will be able to pull "affordable web designer" out of "affordable web designers".
As far as to why Overture and WT have different results, the reason is that they are pulling data from different resources.

And the same would be true.
The same question should also be asked for the singular form.

I don't even have the excuse of , but apparently did not have enough :coffee: this morning.
Please accept my humble appologies... and many thanks for the info.

Mind you, if Denyse starts calling you Groundhog, then I think you should complain to the authorities! <g>
