Great Keyword - But Google Won't Index...
Posted 04 July 2004 - 09:02 AM
I'd be happy for your input on the following:
Using Wordtracker I've came up with great keyphrases relevant to my site.
However when I use google to investigate further it automatically ommits several words from my phrase, words like 'how' etc.
Will that mean that if I optimise for that phrase and my user will search without quotes - we will "miss" each other?
Will there be a way to optimise a page for keyphrases that contain words which google automatically ommits?
Thanks for your input.

Don't believe everything you read, or even what you think the search engines are trying to tell you regarding omitting words in a search. While Google may tell you that a certain word in your phrase is too common and has been omitted, that's not really the case.
Meaning if someone searches on a phrase that matches exactly what you have on your site, you'll still show up and these "stop" words will still be factored into the mix.
Try it sometime and see for yourself. Search on a phrase with a very common word or two. Make note of the sites that appear in the top 10. Then search again without these stop words in the phrase. 99 times out of 100 the top 10 sites will change because some use the exact phrase and some don't.

I did give it a few tries and Google unfortunate-me does return the exact same results with or without the 'omitted' words.

I guess you're right,
I'll have to check each pharse specifically.
To see how it worksout.
