What do people search for?

I believe I've discovered a truth that can push you to the top of Search Engine pages: People talk like people, people type like people!

Look at the title of this post. It's ungrammatical. It ends with a preposition and any school teacher will tell you it's just not English.

BUT THIS IS THE WAY PEOPLE SEARCH!

You get it?

People in general are un-grammatical. They misspell words. They end sentences with prepositions. They type verbose sentences into Search Engine windows.

They're looking for YOU!

Some day they'll get in on the Search grammar (no articles, no prepositions, etc.), but meanwhile they're typing full, un-grammatical sentences in search of a service YOU offer.

What are you doing to ensure that they see your page among the first ten links when they make their un-grammatical search?
