Keyword "Police-Officer" and Gender-Versions: multiple keywords with same meaning, hundreds of combinations
according to my post months ago: Link, i inbetween startet to change these keywords to a standard for better search results, because i had only positive feedback on my linked post.
policewoman, female cop and patrolwoman now are nearly all female-police-officer - but they surely will always be used in small numbers again.
cop is on the way to change to police-officer, policeman and patrolman are on the way to male-police-officer.
By the way i add the keywords "police" or/and "police-officer", where it was missing.
Some combinated keywords i have already startet to change and unite, too - but far more i had not had time for.
Some genre typical keywords like "good cop bad cop" i will leave.
I think there are many months of work before me, cause these many hours of typing and clicking are very exhausting and the energy that I had at the beginning of this idea has changed into stressful work that slows me down. I underestimated the number of titles and the many keyword-combinations.
I started with female-police-officer, because i liked to use this keyword to pay more attention to women.
My questions here are something else:
1) Difference between police-officer and police-detective.
As far as i could research in different countries of the world and even in states of the usa, officers and detectives have not always the same meaning.
Even police officers themselves seem not always to be aware of this and are wondering sometimes about the title of their colleagues from different states.
For people not involved in police-work it seems nearly impossible to differentiate police-officer and police-detective accurately.
The only difference many can think of is, a police-officer might be someone with a uniform, a police-detective someone in plain-clothes.
But that seems not always to be right if i have understood this right.
Probaply most people will say to a person of police "Police Officer" than "Police Detective".
The keyword policeman was set in many very old movies and maybe often in what is more similar to a plain-clothed person of police.
They also could have set cop.
Sometimes there were other keywords related to police, like police-station, motorcycle-policeman, traffic-cop or something like this,
so that it was obvious, the movie includes a uniformed person of police.
Do you think it would be good to differentiate between police-officer and police-detective, or do you think if someone searches for police-movies with male or female persons of police, it is not that important and cannot be accurate to differentiate?
2) Correcting or adding keywords
After some time i startet to thinking about why not just adding keywords to titles, instead of correcting the old keywords.
This would have been another option, but my work was too far advanced to know, what i already had changed.
Do you think the better way would have been to add keywords or is it fine this way, so that some keywords have been or will be gone?
Please share your thoughts about this.
Thank you very much.
