    So I got one page and I want 3 different titles for similar words (ex. Learn juggling, perform juggling, become juggler) that I want to rank for.
    I was thinking of making the 3 other titles just a redirect page? Or create posts for each one with the same content and just hide it on menus? Which would be easier to rank?

    Also, how do stop words work in searches? Because I've noticed 'how to' are stop words, but searching "how to juggle" shows different results than just "juggle".
    Thanks in advance

    Target one of them as your primary keyword (ah, but which one!?) and use the other 2 as LSI keywords. This way, you help the search engines determine what your keyword is about (e.g., Apple the product vs Apple the fruit), you prevent your keyword density from getting too high, and you have a chance to rank for the other keyword variations as well.

    Stop words are just common words (e.g., and). I'm assuming that you saw this when you targeted a keyword in the Yoast SEO plugin. If you're targeting a long-tail keyword which has a stop word that you've included in your page title or URL, then just put the long-tail keyword in the title or URL anyway so long as it doesn't make your page title too long.

    I have done exactly that. Yes I use the Yoast SEO Plugin and it always complains when I include the stop words. Thanks :)

    It will be good to add two keywords in the body of the article and link one keyword to the URL where you want to get traffic and another one to the authority link or wiki link. Add one in the title. This will be helpful.

    Thank you.

    Yoast SEO only allows you to add and track the keyword density of the primary keyword. Any LSI keywords that you find should be included throughout the article either in place of your primary keyword (if you feel like your keyword density is too high) or where you deem it appropriate.

    If I remember good, you can untick option for stop words and it will not bother you.

    Using anchor, h2, h1, h3, tags and a 1k+ words should rank all 3.
