    I'm not sure Yahoo has this feature in it's algorithm, does it? I thought this was only a feature of Google's algorithm.

    I believe that LSI would be useful for ranking in Google's SE, and I would think you'd want to use the same keyword density with related keywords as you have with your main keywords. I haven't seen any specific information regarding this, but that's my basic strategy.

    As far as I know, Google is the only SE using LSI at present. I do know that using a tilde search (i.e. "~keyword") will only highlight related keywords in Google - not in Yahoo! or MSN.

    Hi,

    Some quick Fact about LSI ( latent Semantic Indexing)

    1. LSI is 30% more effective than popular word matching method.
    2. LSI uses a powerful and fully automatic statistical method (Singular Value Decomposition)
    3. It is very effective in cross-languages retrievals.
    5. LSI can retrieve relevant information that does not contain query words,
    6. It finds more relevant information than other methods.

    There are some examples for LSI based SEO and Non LSI based SEO, Please see and analyze the difference.

    Result on Google for Query “Laptop” without LSI
    (Kindly analyze the result on Top 10 pages format of Google)

    http://www.google.com/search?num=100&compl...en&lr=&q=laptop

    Result on Google for query “ ~Laptop “ with LSI
    http://www.google.com/search?num=100&compl...lr=&q=%7Elaptop

    Result on Google for Query “Mobile” without LSI
    http://www.google.com/search?num=100&compl...le+&btnG=Search

    Result on Google for Query “~Mobile” with LSI

    http://www.google.com/search?num=100&compl...r=&q=%7Emobile+


    We have written a 37 page e-book on LSI. it includes the some fact about LSI.

    Kindly let me know if you enjoy reading.I will mail it by PM.

    Google is implementing it its semantic result.

    we are making our research more extensive with the latest fact and figure.

    Thanks

    I'm not gonna go into details here. But how the HELL did you come up with that exact number?

    You will naturally get very different numbers depending on your document collection and what kind of search you are performing. Different domains different results.

    You claim to have written a book on this subject, one would expect atleast some academic background and basic knowledge of information retrieval. Please explain yourself.
