    If I successfully rank for the keyword phrase "Man Thongs in New York", am I competing for people who type in only this exact phrase? Or also for variations of this phrase and/or related keywords?

    Would my efforts to rank for "Man Thongs in New York" have any effect on somebody searching for "Man Things in New York City" or "Blue Man Thongs in New York"?

    I hope I am asking this the right way.

    it's depend on how you will promote your keywords!!
    as search engine give you result for your exact keyword "Man Thongs in New York" if the page targeted for keyword has good back links and proper use of this keyword on meta and content..

    while if you get result for any other phrase for keywords it means the competitors of yours have less promotion for those phrase..

    i suggest u that if you want only one keyword to be rank good just promote with only that keyword and if you want phrase to be rank also u have to promote those phrase as well..

    I don't think it would have any effect over 'Man things in New York'... Both the keywords have good number of searches.
    Moreover, it depends on your promotion too (as nbseo said)

    But I think, you should not try to optimize your website for second keyword (which is not related to your website)... it may affect your bounce rate.

    Kaithe hit this one on the head. Most importantly come up with a strategy to market your keywords!

    I was mostly asking how far a person's seo effort spans out from it's original specific target phrase. I think I got the info I need thanks.
