Longer Search Queries Dropping

In Mid December Hit wise reported that the growth rate for longer search queries i.e. those searches using terms of 5 to 8 words was flat between October and November of 09. Searches of over 8 words were up 1% while shorter search queries (those 1 to 4 words) was flat on a month to month comparison. Searches of one word still make up the majority (24.13%) of ALL searches.

Larson Notes & Satire: So do you work harder at long strings or the one word wonders? I'm not sure but I’ll keep banging at the one word wonders and keep my focus on long sting attacks in the back ground. If I can get even up to the 2nd or 3rd page of a one word search and pack in my long string Meta tags key words I should be able to close the gap against the “big-boys”, maybe.
