*ing, *ed, *s - - are they treated as seperate words

 12:09 am on Feb 27, 2003 (gmt 0)

Wanted to solicit a few opinions on keyword density…

In determining keyword density, do search engines count words with an added suffix the same as the root of the word?

For example…

Does the word “swimming” also count towards the keyword density for the word “swim”?

Thanks in advance!

In my experience it sometimes happens. But more often than not I have seen that they treat them differently.

Using your example I think that they are similar but the search engines would most likely see them as seperate.
