    Hi, in overture search terms suggestion I search for sunglasses, and got a lot of proposals back, but to my astonishment I found that searchers use sun glasses instead of sunglasses. What is the correct spelling? And why can this make a difference?

    carneol,

    I say the correct spelling of a keyword, is whatever the customer is searching for.

    You would be wise to optimize pages/listings for both keywords:

    sunglasses
    sun glasses

    I think it depends on if they are searching for a web site or a website

    I believe there is a problem with overture's suggestion tool in this regard. I've noticed several one word phrases that show up as two words. Check out the free trial at:

    http://www.wordtracker.com

    they seem to have a more accurate representation of what's actually being searched for.

    Yes, "sun glasses" might be the correct spelling (???), but I really doubt it is what is being searched for more. If you search for "sun glasses" in google, you'll actually trigger their spell checker and the message:

    "did you mean sunglasses"

    will pop up.
