Even more Prepositions for keyword research in Wordtracker 
(Part 2 of 3)

By John Alexander


This is the part 2 of a 3 part series where I will be posting examples of prepositions along with a few interesting keyword observations. 

What is a preposition?

A preposition is a word that connects a sentence together and usually describes the relationship between a noun or pronoun. For example, "the passenger got off the ship." "Off" would be the preposition. 

For example, "the sparrow flew ________ the tree."
"over" would be the preposition. 

So let's take a look at a few keyword observations in Part 2

Keyword preposition: causes
