    Phrase Matching (for similarity?)

    Hey kids,
    I've got a tool that does magical SEO things to keyword traffic on your site.

    I'm looking to have about 5-10 keywords in a database table and then when someone plugs something into Google, it'll check how close that something is to the words you've got in your DB.

    Example: You've got "web design perth" in your database, but someone typed in "perth web people that are designers that don't suck".

    I'd like to be able to run that very-long-tailed keyword into a filter that compares it and "web design perth" and is able to tell me if they're connected (and maybe even to what degree).

    Anybody got anything out there? I'd be happy to pay you in SEO efforts, charm or lollies if need be.

    Smooches.

    A) It's a tool that tells you if the traffic you're getting is related to the keywords you're targeting.
    II) Magic is how you do things that are neat and cool and don't need fully explained.
    3) If there's a varying degree, I'll be able to decide "how close" after comparing a few different strings. For now, I'll say "within 50%".
    d) I have no idea what that means. If you mean "do I understand that the two keyword phrases that I used in my example are far enough apart that they won't ever be related" then "No" is the answer. I'm here looking for help, and I was hoping someone would be able to tell me if there's a PHP function or method of determining how "related" two different strings are.

    Cheers.

    some functions which might be used in a larger algorithm could be
    soundex()
    metaphone()
    similar_text()
    porter stemmer algorithm

    Cheers for that!
    Researching off your list above, I also found, levenshtein().

    I'm playing with each of them now and they're AWESOME.

    I'm sure that exactly what I'm looking for is probably a combination of a couple of them, but these were a huge help. Thank You!
