    Sort of stupid question but:

    If I have mothers day and mother's day in an article, does google view it as the same word?

    If I want to rank for mothers day ideally, because people type that more, should I optimize the site for that? Or will it be best to use mother's day because its more grammatically correct?


    I dont wnat to get an overoptimization penalty so I dont know if they view apostrophes as one word or two

    If anyone could help me it would be great.
