I have a table that contains a column for keywords that I expect to become
quite large and will be used for web searches. I will either index the
column or come up with a simple hashing algorithm add the hash key to the
table and index that column.
I am thinking the max length in the keyword column I need to support is 30,
but the average would be less than10
Any suggestions on whether to use char(30), varchar(30) or text, would be
appreciated. I am looking for the best performance option, not necessarily
the most economical on disk.
Or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
