When keywording, should you include both the singular and plural versions of keywords?


Also, is it necessary to use the different forms of verbs: for example jump and jumping?


What about two different words that disambiguate to the same word, such as season and seasonal which both disambiguate to "season"?

There probably is an official line on this. Myself, I usually find that different verb forms may collapse to the same end result. If you use DeepMeta to upload, you can easily experiment.

Also, the only foolproof way to know about a particular plural, I think, is to try it in the search box and see how the results match up against the singular. If they don't match then include the plural ... Though, again, you will often find that a plural collapses to the singular.
