What about this longtailed keyword?

    I recently found what I think is a pretty good keyword with a decent amount of searches/month and fairly low competition.

    The longtailed keywords contain the word "for". example, loans *for* students. How is this handled by big g? I mean, will it be ignored and interpreted as "loans students"?

    loans for students = zero competition
    loans students = massive competition

    (obviously those are not the keyword I'm looking at.)

    rule of thumb for me is longtail equals less traffic, less competition, but more quality visitors, higher conversion ratio - i personally prefer longtail

    for is a stop word. it is not taken into consideration by google when users perform a search. the returned results in SERPs are pretty much the same.
