    I have a quick question as I'm targeting a new keyword for a backlinking campaign I'm about to start. Here is the example, the example keyword is made up but the numbers are real:

    Dog Collar - 90k searches [exact] monthly
    Dog Collars - 40k searches [exact] monthly

    Will I have to treat the keywords as individuals and rank for them separately? Or if I target one will it take care of the plural version of it? Thank you for any insight you can provide.

    You need to treat them as separate keywords.

    You have to do both the singular and plural keywords separately. All the major search engines including Google treat plurals as a separate case. Not very user friendly, but it sure does pump up the Adwords revenue.

    Plural and singular are separate, but you can easily rank the same page for both. Just switch it up in your anchor text. I do it all the time and usually keep them in the same or +or- one position.

    WARNING !!!!

    Be very very careful now, it's not like the old days,

    Google instant is killing all the high searched plurals and singulars as well,

    Some times when u type your keyword in Google with an "s", it automatically take it off, and the same thing with singulars, sometimes it automatically add it to your search terms ...

    So make sure that ur keyword is free from the above issue and that it stays as it is when u type it before you put your effort into it ...
