3 word phrase vs 2 word phrase and grammar
I think I might be over complicating things but I have a question nonetheless.
When I am looking at my keywords, I can find many good 2 word phrases that have high search counts and according to Traffic Travis, are easy to rank for. However, the 2 words don't actually make grammatical sense and I am wondering how the writers are going to use these phrases if they don't make sense.
However, if I add "and" or "for" or another linking word to make the phrase more grammatically correct (and in my mind at least, more logical), the search count is lower (but still easy to rank for).
As such, I am not sure which phrase to choose when faced with this option. Will the 3 word phrase pick up the 2 word phrase when searched for? Or vice versa? How do search engines work in such situations?
If I select the 2 word phrase, does the writer have to use the phrase exactly even if it is hard to get into a sentence?? I'm not sure how to proceed with this and would appreciate any help.
Thanks so much,
