From the point of view of the search engines, does the placement of the apostrophe change the keyphrase?

Is "girl's volleyball club" the same as "girls' volleyball club"?

The latter is more correct for our usage, but I suspect more people would be seaching using the former.
or maybe just "girls volleyball club"?

Thanks

Do a search in Google using both forms of the phrase and see what the results show. If they show the same results, then there's no difference. If they show different results, then there obviously is a difference.

Hope this helps!

That does help!

Also helps me feel silly for not thinking of it.

Anyway, Google sees "girls" and " girls' " as the same, but "girl's " is different.

Which keyword tool would you recommend to see which phrase is more commonly searched for?

Thanks

Google's keyword research tool set to "Exact Match."
