    Strange Keywords in Google Webmaster Tools

    Google Webmaster Tools is finally showing keywords for my site, but its showing weird ones.

    Two keywords I found in particular were "host" and "unlimit".

    Now, the reason these are weird is because both of these words are barely referenced, if referenced at all on my entire website. Instead, two prominent words are "hosting" and "unlimited", yet these keywords aren't being shown in the dashboard.

    Now I'm wondering - is Google stripping down the keywords to present tense? Because that's what it looks like its doing. I'm looking farther down my list, and every single verb is present tense.

    Hopefully this is only happening in Webmaster Tools, and isn't actually affecting SERPs

    Ah, Google has clarified it for me. For now, all keywords listed will be present tense. When you click on a keyword in Google Webmaster Tools, it will show you all of the variations of that word found on your site.

  3. I understand you must be wornering why they picked up random words even when you never even targeted them? this how the crawler works, no matter how much you target they will pick up the most prominent word in all your articles and use as your main keyword.

    It is right that sometime google webmaster tool show such keywords that are the parts of the term which we have entered. But just by this reason we can not ignore other meaningful keyword result which it show to us, and every time i have found the best as per my need. So for me it is best but yes it is our responsibility to choose the best for us.

    Very informative post to me. Since I'm new, really this post get some knowledge on webmaster tool.

  6. Actual keywords that you can met is from search engine. Google webmaster tools only keywords prediction, and not always actual.
