Local Search and Keyword Order

October 22, 2010

Do more people search [“Location” + Keyword], [Keyword + “Location”], or [Keyword + “in Location”]? The answer based on the data I am looking at today suggests [“Location” + keyword] almost always wins. Sometimes the difference is minimal, sometimes the difference is huge.

Local Search and  Keyword Volume

The takeaway message is to try and rank for as many keyword combinations as you can, but make sure you do the research and focus on the higher volume phrase orders first and foremost.
