    Maybe it's just me...

    Say I optimize for the word "SEO Wizard"

    Then I will rank for
    • SEO Wizard
    • SEO Generator
    • SEO Creator
    I really don't understand why, it's like google has it's built in thesaurus that allows you to rank of keywords you didn't optimize for.and are actually non-existent in on page seo.

    Yes, Google knows what synonyms are. This is why LSI keywords work, and this is why keyword diversification is WAY easier than people think. Its also why over optimization can creep up on you I think. A lot of people say they are focusing on 5 keywords and they are all synonyms with one word different.

    And no, its not that Gogle has a thesaurus... I'm sure they do. Its that Google has the world's most advanced learning AI now. RankBrain, based on GoogleBrain AI. Its nuts. A good rule of thumb to go by is that if any idiot understands its the same thing then Google does.
