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?

Thanks

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.

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.
