    Stop words are list of words ignored by search engines, most search engines do not consider extremely common words in order to speed up search results or to save disk space. These filtered words are known as "Stop Words".

    As a token of appreciation for BHW members I have compile it from

    Code:
    hxxp://tools.seobook.com/general/keyword-density/stop_words.txt 
    hxxp://www.link-assistant.com/seo-stop-words.html
    with hope that can help anyone who looking for it.

    Downloaded text files available in 'txt list style' & 'txt comma separated' with total of 946 words.

    Don't forget to say THANKS!

    Just so I'm sure, what would you use that list for? Are you saying the stop words shouldnt be included in a webpage because they are ignored anyway?
    Thanks.

    I would assume you would not want to use these words are part pf your keyword strategy since they overlooked by most search engines and are not likely to come up in any query, correct?

    The best way to win the SEO war is to have a great site with great content and great value.

    Even with 0 backlinks Google will treat you right.

    I disagree. Unless this is a brand new change within the past couple weeks. In the past I've built beautiful websites that had 100% unique and useful content only to sit on the last page of the Google abyss.

    still not gettin' it. for the most part, a 3 kw phrase is ideal and obviously you wouldn't want to waste one of those words as being "the" or "a".

    is that the point here?

    This makes no sense, your website still needs to be human readable to convert. If we remove these stop words we are left with caveman sentences. Did I mess the point?

    I've never understood why some people avoid stop works at all costs. If I see that the search query "How To Kill A Person" is receiving 2,400 searches a month and has low competition, then I'm going to target that exact keyword and not use "How Kill Person" like an illiterate neanderthal.

    Knowing stop words is useful, but definitely not in the way that is implied in this post.
