    How important is the order of keywords when someone is searching on google? For example, if I had a site optimized for "free tv blue" would I easily outrank someone whose site was optimized for "free blue tv" if someone searched for "free tv blue"? How much importance is placed on the order that searched keywords come up in the site?
    The reason I ask is that I've found several cases where by just changing the order of words you can find a pretty highly searched keyword with seemingly little competition... But when I search for "free tv blue" rather than "free blue tv", I usually just come up with "free blue tv" type results, which either means that a) These keywords really could be easy to rank highly for since there's no competition or b) These keywords blow and writing things in their most natural order is always the best decision
    Would really appreciate some advice from someone who knows about keywords/on page SEO

    I would gop with both keywords. People type stuff in differently on Big G all the time. You would be surprised how much extra cash flow you will bring in by just ranking for those little keywords that you never think will. Even if it brought you a sale a month its worth it. I wish you the best :)

    The terms definitely get searches (lots of them), what im worried about is the SEO... Whether having a different order of words will give me a big enough edge to compete
