    Hello I would like to know the following:
    Let's say I want to rank the following keyword: Best products New York
    If in my article I use the following variation:
    Best product in New York
    Best product [New York]

    Will these count as the target KW I'm trying to rank or do they count as a different KW? If I use a stop word inside the KW Im trying to rank will be bad for my KW desnity?
