    different result when "in" is included

    When i search for "web hosting in singapore", google will include a line saying that : "in" is a very common word and was not included in your search, and www.qoolhost.com is listed in the 5th result.

    If i search for "web hosting singapore", i cant seems to get the site in the first 2,3 page, is "in" really doesnt make a different??

    * both phrases didnt include "

    (with "in") http://www.google.com.sg/search?hl=e...G=Search&meta=
    (without "in") http://www.google.com.sg/search?hl=e...G=Search&meta=

    Other people have noticed this in the results too. Ive seen it when testing my own SERPs... I think there was a thread or two mentioning this effect, but I guess they would be hard to find.

    I guess theres not much you can do....

    Google does have its quirks.

    Do you think if i reduce the frequency of "in" in my body content will help?

    I was the first result in google more than a year ago until i get punished with 0 PR. I got back the PR a few months ago, but still cant get back my listing. Able to be listed in first page of msn (beta) and yahoo but not google, so still working on it.... really clueless.
