    We use stop words all the time, whether we're online or in our everyday lives. These are the articles, prepositions, and phrases that connect keywords together and help us form complete, coherent sentences. Common words like its, an, the, for, and that, are all considered stop words.

    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.

    Most search engines do not consider extremely common words in order to speed up search results or to save disk space. These filtered words are known as "Stop Words".

    The most common SEO stop words are pronouns, articles, prepositions, and conjunctions. This includes words like a, an, the, and, it, for, or, but, in, my, your, our, and their.

    When people search for something online, search engines like Google omit these words in their results because they don't relate to the keywords in the search. So, rather than looking up content that's related to these words, Google removes them altogether and prioritizes the keywords.

    So, the next time you're trying to hit a word count when writing a blog post, try filling that open space with keywords rather than filler copy that doesn't improve your SEO.

    For some search engines, these are some of the most common, short function words, such as the, is, at, which, and on. In this case, stop words can cause problems when searching for phrases that include them, particularly in names such as "The Who", "The The", or "Take That".
