Hey guys!

Say if I had the keyword "widget shopping in Newfoundland and Labrador" in my webpage and someone searched "widget shopping in Newfoundland", would my page show up in the results for "Car shopping in Newfoundland and Labrador"?

**All outside factors being 'perfect'**

Try using the tilde search in google for alternative words.
example: ~car
Look for the bolded words.

I don't think that answered my question clearly. I think the edit from the moderator may have confused people because they forgot to edit a 'specific' keyword. I'll fix the error right now.

Say if I had the keyword "widget shopping in Newfoundland and Labrador" in my webpage and someone searched "widget shopping in Newfoundland", would my page show up in the results for "widget shopping in Newfoundland and Labrador"?

Thedough> The ~in the search will give you a semantic search and the bolted words in the SERP will be the keywords that are semantically linked to your original search word

Presto>It might, but giving you a clear answer to this question is hard. It will show up if google does not have any better fitting links in the index. How prominently it will figure in the SERP, what placement it your link will have, will depend on the competition for that particular key phrase.

I'm not worried about where my website appears in the SERPs. I'm just trying to see if someone searches a portion of a keyword, will it count for the full keyword.

Example:

My Keyword: "Red Widgets from Canada"
User Searches: "Widgets from Canada"

Will it pull the 'widgets from Canada' from my keyword 'red widgets from canada' and include the results for the keyword 'red widgets from canada' in the SERPs?

Again, it might. It still depends on how many other links are found more relevant then the page that contains your Keyword: "Red Widgets from Canada.

If Google has 100 pages optimized for “Widgets from Canada” with the same or better PR then your page, those 100 pages will appear before yours. If google has 100 pages optimized for “blue Widgets from Canada” with the same or better PR then your page, those 100 pages will/might also appear before yours.

For google it’s a question of relevancy. Your page is, of course, less relevant then the pages optimized for the actual search and less relevant then pages with a better PR.

I think it propbably would in your "red widgets in canada" example. It might no rank well for "widgets in canada", but I think it would still get pulled. As was stated, it really depends on other relevant results Google has for the specific term.
