I must say i am getting more and more frustrated that google is seeing related terms as the key term. For example if i search for a name in a town im getting mixed bags of similar spellings of the name. However i already know the name i want, all these similar spelled names are totally not what i am searching for. If i search for a shop in an airport im getting shops in all airports nearby geographically. But i have specified the airport i want a shop in so all these other airports are wrong results. To make matters worse the number one result is a different airport but in the same city. Im finding this on more and more searches, the serps are a mish mash of related searches but so basically related that they are wide of the mark. Its like fingers are veryyyy closely associated with hands but if i search for information on fingers, its fingers i want information for. If the top result if for hands then thats a bad result in my view. Far too much weight now given to related keywords. As i said the problem is because the understanding of related terms is so basic, its not seeing the difference between the topic and the sub-topic.
