Does Google see backward key words?

    Allow me to explain. Let's say your trying to use the key word "big pink dolls" in your hub or article. If someone types in "pink dolls big" or "big dolls pink" will Google still show your post in the results?

    I know they will skip words to find you. Like, if you said "big and fun pink and red dolls" Google will bold the words big, pink and dolls.

    But what about backwards, will you be found as long as all the key words are in your article? I assume not but I'm not sure. Just curious,,,, smile

    Yes, but in a situation where a page with the same amount of SEO has the words in correct order, I believe it would rank higher.

      Moreover, those who really want big pink dolls  learn to quote the phrase to avoid seeing unrelated results.

        I would love to see stats on that.

        Google users still dont know the difference between their search bar and their URL bar.

        which is why you will see IM'ers attempting ploys like these

        It’s very rare that I see exact match searches appearing in GA. I too would be interested to see anything that supports this.

    Thanks both of you. Some key phases people type them in several different ways, which is why I asked. I'll just pick the one I think most type in, then sprinkle different ways throughout the article. smile

    On page factors are thought to account for around 20 to 30% of the overall relevancy given to a page. The rest comes from other areas of which links and their associated anchor text is by far the biggest driver of rankings.

    It doesn’t matter to any great extent whether the page uses "pink dolls big" or "big dolls pink" what matters is what your links say.

    If you use both enough times in your links then you will rank for both.
