Plural search in Overture Suggestions Plural search in Overture Suggestions clarksc3 msg:811889 7:50 pm on Jun 16, 2003 (gmt 0) This has probably been addresses many times but I am usually in the Google News section.
The keywords "Seattle Hotel" and "Seattle Hotels" are the same in the Overture Suggestions just like all Plurals. I can I find out what is the most popular to optimise for?
Is there another tools to find out which is preferred?

Overture seem to mix the 2 together.
a search on something like Espottings tool usually would do the trick in my opinion, or failing that a "trial" account at Google adwords can normally throw up some interesting things :)

FindWhat seems to mix the 2 together as well.
I'm willing to *guess* that it will be the plural.

wordtracker can usually give you a pretty good idea... webdiversity msg:811893 10:02 pm on Jun 16, 2003 (gmt 0)
A lot depends on the sector. We've seen some where the plural is 3 times as popular as the singular and others where it's just a bit more. There is also the difference between impressions and clicks, and that too will vary on the sector.
Suffice to say that Overture don't cover every angle of plural/singular/mispelling, so if you don't look to find them then you won't find them.
Optimise for both, buy both if appropriate.
