Hello all respected warriors,

I have read somewhere that Google avoids words of praise like best, largest etc. in content or description of site.

Is this true?

Thanks in advance.

    I have no idea and don't really matter to me as I don't use them. Hope you get a decent answer soon though.

    I did not heard anything about that Google avoids words of praise like best, largest etc. in content or description of site. Even it does not give more importance to "or", "and" etc.

    I highly doubt this.

    I think you may be confusing a rule in Adwords with the natural rankings. In Adwords, you cannot use superlatives (best, biggest, largest...) in your ads. But as far as your site is concerned, I don't believe that the algo checks for such words to decrease your rankings.

      Come on people, can we not have a real conversation as to what
      the OP asked? Just nonsense.

      The truth is google does ignore certain words in search. That does
      not mean you can't use them!

      They're called stop words and there are probably dozens of them.
      They have to ignore hyperbole and other abused or unneeded words
      when people search. There's no penalty, and there's nothing
      nefarious about the practice. And on the flip side, sometimes
      these stop words are needed and their algo does include them.

      Normally, if some sites deserve the words included, it will be
      a very short list and all sites after that ignore the word.

      To narrow the results down to what google thinks the searcher
      wants requires them to ignore certain words.

      If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

    Stop Words List

    The word best is on that list.

    Like Paul said it doesn't matter If you use those words, just don't use only those words.

    I'm not sure of that. Never heard. Maybe you can use that but not the "best" word alone. This is the first time I've encountered such question and never it crosses my mind

    I don't think so. I have never came across this issue. That seems weird.

    I certainly dont hope so since my target keyword starts with "best" lol.
