I've noticed this for awhile. 'Price' or 'Cost' are one of the very top keywords in my 'Page Analysis' on Google Sitemaps. Often when I do Keyword Density analysis, I find the same thing. So my question to all you SEO/Ecommerce folks is how do you feel about this?
Do you like that Price/Cost/Starting At is one of the top words used on your site?
Have you decided to eliminate these words and just show the price? Or maybe make a small .gif that says 'price' (I've seen this done).
Have you decided that SE's might appreciate the words and use it to flag you as an Ecommerce site? this could be good or bad I guess.
