    Say I want to target "science practice problems" as a keyword (just an example ;)). But there are also some long tail keywords phrases like "environmental science practice problems" that get some traffic.

    would a page with title, h1 tags, page name of "enviornmental science practice problems" also rank for "science practice problems"?? or does that extra word hurt my SEO?
