I've looked at a number of similar questions to this but can't find a proper answer...
Let's say I want to write an article about 'apples and dieting', I do some research on the Adwords Tool and it tells me that:
- 'apples and dieting' gets 1000 searches a month
- 'apples dieting' gets 5000 searches a month
I'm confused here for two reasons:
(1) Why is Google telling me there are different search volumes for a term only differentiated by a stop word? I thought that Google ignores stop words?
(2) Given that I want to write an article that makes sense, I can't repeat the keyword 'apples dieting' 10 times in an article. Surely I have to go with 'apples and dieting' and forfeit the larger search volume?
Can someone help me out here? Am I totally misunderstanding something here?
