Stop-word List

Stop-word List

When writing your pages titles, h1’s and h2’s exclude these stop-words where possible. You can avoid reading this list if you write your titles without filler words. Such as “the, and, but etc…”.

By avoiding stop-words and carefully titling your pages, you will discover what your Focus keywords are for each page. With a clearly defined focus keywords you can create content that directly targets your audience. As an after effect, search engines will notice you have important and relevant content and index your site accordingly.

I have come to the conclusion from my research that stop-words aren’t as relevant as they used to be. However omitting them makes your titles much more concise.

This free Stop-Word list is available on many websites. Feel free to use it and share it too.

    I have he word “to” in my company name. How badly does this affect my SEO? I’d like to keep my company name in my page titles.

      Jen,
      It won’t affect your SEO if you get the bulk of it complete. Read through some of my other SEO blogs to get an understanding of the issues to fix. Thank you for stopping by!
