[resolved] RegExp not working properly with focus keywords (?) (4 posts)

    In version 1.1.7 RegExp support was added for use with the focus keywords. But somehow they won´t work properly. I just posted an article about the album "Jackal" of a newcomer band from Estonia named DefRage, see http://derbenni.de/musik/defrage-jackal.

    The keywords I used was "defrage|jackal" (without quotes). The overview tells me I´ve used the keywords quite a few times and everything is OK, but the analysis tab tells me I haven´t used one of the two keywords. It seems like it´s looking for "defrage jackal" instead of "defrage" OR "jackal".

    Am I just missing something or does the RegExp support not include perl-compatible regular expressions?

    Here are some screenshots of how I´ve done things:

    No it doesn't do that and will never, sorry. One keyword only.

    OK, thanks for the answer. Then I misunderstood what you meant with RegExp.

    Is there another way to achieve this? In my opinion it´s hard to optimize an article to a two-words-keyword without repeating the same phrase over and over and lowering the joy of reading the article.

    Beforehand I tried the OR-modifier Google itself allows when searching. Any plans to support this one in the near future? Or do you have any idea how to handle these sorts of things properly?

    No, you could just try the test twice, but currently it's impossible in the plugin.
