What is your experience with keyword phrases that don’t make sense but have a great KEI, an example might be something like “fax loan no payday.” Now this MUST BE something people type in SE’s because it you rearrange the words and do a Google search you’ll see that you get a vastly larger number of searches for the latter. Yet, while it may look odd as anchor text, these phrases deliver a high KEI and seem like it could be a wise choice to use these.

What do you think?

C'mon guys, help out a brother. :-)

I can't believe that many of you don't have any thoughts on this. What do you think?

fax loan no payday

I'd try the Google and the Overture keyword tools, and I'd be wary about automated searches showing up on the latter.

Doesn't sound to me like it's a phrase that many real people would search.

It's been a while since I've looked at KEI, but as I remember it was overly simplistic.

This would seem to be a trick so I don't think it would work.

My guess would be these phrases aren't being searched. I've spent countless hours looking through my web logs for dozens of sites over the years and and I can't recall finding nonsensical phrases pulling in any significant traffic. However, you could always test a few of these phrases on your site and see what happens.
