Do robots skip important words?
While robots try to skip meaningless words, do they miss?

What if free is an important word, but engines pass over it?

Hi lfloor.

I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. From this list [searchengineworld.com] I can see that free is indeed filtered out.

Are you concerned about free as in "free speech" being the keyword phrase?

That's just my stopword list tm. That is just built from real world experiences. Free is not a stop word on most search engines, but it so common that I treat it as such.
