For SEO: List of stop words

In order to speed up their searches and to save disk space, search engines like Google don’t record and never give much importance to "stop words". In Internet "stop words" are commonly used words that are filtered out from natural language data.

An article or content without "stop words" is hard to read and may be treated as spam. We should not avoid these words in content. But it is better for us to avoid them in URLs and Titles. A page title should be not more than 70 characters and when you use these "stop words" in titles they will fill up the character space. Page title should be concise. Reducing the usage of "stop words" will increase the keyword density which improves your search rankings.
