Hello, I am a pc technician and post ads on Craiglist locally and would like to ask an important question please? My keywords are:

I'd like to know specifically this please, if someone should type these 2 words "pc repair" whether on CL or Google, would my ad show up? If you notice, I have "pc" and "repair" as 2 separate words above, is this effective or would I need to use keywords as "phrases" instead of as individual words so "pc repair"?

As fa as Craiglist is concerned, why don't you test it for yourself.


I just did that. I searched for "PC Repair" (without the quotes), and it returned hits that contained both those words, but not necessarily as a phrase. When I included the quotes, it returned hits that contained the exact phrase. In other words, it did what you would expect.


Google is another matter. That might return hits that contain one or both words - or, conceivably, neither - either as a phrase or otherwise.
