Web VS Web. How right? In modern Russian every daythere are more and more new words. With the growing popularity of the Internet, our speech includes new concepts and new terms that denote these concepts. Each such term begins with the prefix "web", which is translated from English as "spider web" and means the term belongs to the "World Wide Web" - the Internet. Thus, well-known and popular terms such as web-design, website, web-programming, web-technologies.

However, when you enter such a query into the searchThe user must switch between the Russian and English keyboard layouts at least once. This is inconvenient and tedious. Therefore, gradually the English-speaking web prefix was transformed into a "web", which became an excellent substitute, because to write "Web design" or "Web site" more comfortable.

But, you know, a certain number of Russian-speakingInternet users continue to use terms with the prefix "web". Why do they do this? Is it the habit, the convenience of dialing or something else? Let's find out!

First, let's look at the below query statistics for Russia and Ukraine on Google for the last 5 years (from 2004 to the present).

The numbers on the graph show share of searches for a given query in the total number of searches, performed in Google for a certain time. These numbers do not represent the absolute values ​​of the search volume, since the data are given in the normalized form and displayed on a scale of 0 to 100.

Each point on the graph correlates withthe maximum value, that is, 100. For example, suppose that the interest in the search query of the ski has increased dramatically in November. The system assigns this peak a value of 100. Now suppose that in December there was a significant decrease in interest and the next peak was about half the November time. This peak is assigned a value of 50, and so on. If there is not enough data, 0 is displayed. The numbers indicated next to the search queries above the graph are the total values.

Explanation of the schedule. As can be seen from this graph, the term "web design" all 5 years in 2, and even in 3 times the popular term "Web design". Notice that the graph lines do not intersect once.

Explanation of the schedule. As you can see from this chart, popularity and query "Web site", and the query "website" for the entire period under review is almost the same. In addition, it is clearly visible that with every year the popularity of these requests is growing, because the schedule tends to the maximum mark.

Explanation of the schedule. This graph shows that until November 2005 requests "creation of web sites" and "creation of web sites" there was so little in relation to the maximumthe number that their number is taken as 0. Its maximum mark "request for the creation of Web sites" reached in May 2009, after which the popularity of both requests fell. In December 2009, the popularity of these requests is just under half the maximum amount.

So why do users continue to write both "web" and "web"?

Confusion in the correct spelling and usewords and terms borrowed from a foreign language, happens often. Suffice it to recall how many animated discussions the term Internet calls. How to write it correctly: "Internet", "Internet" or simply "Internet"? Does this word bend? Exactly such discussions and disputes arise about "web-terms" as well. Unfortunately, there is no single opinion on this matter, since there are no officially recognized rules for writing and using these words. And that's why, basically, all Internet users write both "web design" and "web-design", as they are more convenient.

By the way at one time it was quite fashionable to useSimilar terms with the prefix "WEB", i.e. all three letters are written in uppercase. One can say with certainty that this is just the wrong form of writing, because "web" (or "web") is not an abbreviation, but is used as an indecipherable part of a complex noun. And therefore, in accordance with the rules of the Russian language, words like "web design" or "website" should be written only through a hyphen.

Note to SEO-optimizers. If the subject matter of your site is related tothese terms, or you have encountered a similar problem when writing other terms, we advise you to include in the list of keywords several options for writing search queries with these terms. The more popular variants of using the same word you take into account, the greater the target audience will be able to cover.
