    Question Another Singular & Purlar domain keywords question.

    I know this is a question that has been asked many times but i am not sure. Can someone please advise?

    Singular or purlar?

    For example, I did a search on "webmaster tool" and "webmaster tools", a site with the keywords "webmaster toolS" appear number 1 in both result.

    http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=webmaster+tool

    http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=webmaster+tools

    So does this means that if you have a domain with a purlar keyword then people searching for both singular and purlar can find yr site compared to your keyword being singular only.

    Thanks

    Sometimes...

    Search engines are able to look at the plural form of a word, be it a search term or a term on your page, and figure out the root of it. Its called "stemming".

    What you should do is go to wordtracker.com and check and see which form gets searched more often, and then use that form.
