    keyword question
    hey,

    it might be funny to experienced ones, but i'm little confused.. i have a 4 word keyword that i'd like to rank for. i'm confused because when you type in google it shows 465.000 pages and with quotes it's 1,740.000. shouldn't it be opposite?

    Ivan

    You are not the only one confused as I have come across this many times and have found no explanation for it, perhaps someone here can throw some light on it.

    yeah, seems like a big mistery, since nobody can answer that on any place i've asked.

    one more thing i'm courious about, when i go trough the pages in google after 46 pages it says that remaining results are repeating.. is this the actual number of pages? are the remaining 1,739.570 just the same pages? or we generally believe the first number appeared? (i just like numbers)

    In many ways Google search is not as useful or reliable as they once were, I do not trust everything they choose to show me as being factual. If you were to try again from a public computer you may very well see something quite different.

    God only knows why i picked that keyword in first place. looks like obscure markets are attractive to me

    Keywords and keyword phrases will obviously be linked to your product but the "Killer" ones are those used by buyers searching for your product. Get it right and you are just about "1st down and inches"
