Hello Friends,

In computing, stop words are words which are filtered out before or after processing of natural language data (text). For SEO purposes, these are extremely common words that most search engines skip over in order to save space in their databases, and to speed up the process of crawling/indexing.

Stop words in SEO, also known as ‘Google stop words’, are common words that don’t change the meaning of the keyword or keyword. For example, in the search query ‘show me hotels’, ‘show me’ is a stop phrase because it doesn't change the meaning of the search term (the search engine knows that you want to see hotels).

Stop words are commonly used words such as articles, pronouns and prepositions. Stop words are not added to the search dictionary, but they are counted as words for proximity (a distance between words) searching purposes. The primary reason for not indexing stop words is to allow for the most precise Result List.
