I have a site that shows only the domain name for the title
when I do a www.MYSITE.com look up on allthweb.com

What are some of the algorithm criteria.

  • keyword frequency ?
  • keyword weight ?
  • keyword prominence ?
  • link popularity ?

    I can see

  • keyword frequency
    In the Title, Description, URL, Body Text

  • keyword weight ?
    In the Title, Description, body text

  • keyword prominence ?
    In the Title, Description

  • link popularity ?
    Not sure how to figure this one out
    I tried searching for www.MYSITE.com but it showed links from my site as well as others.

    Any other insight on how Fast(alltheweb) ranks pages?

    Phew, that's a lot of questions luckynh.

    Let me give you some general observations.

    Both keyword density and frequency can be high, repetitions of the keyword in the title work well.
    Pages with a description tag are working better than those without.
    Position 1 in the title is not the best place for your keyword.
    Link pop is important, particularly the text of the incoming link and probably the surrounding text.

    Your mileage may vary.

    Thanks NFFC

    I have most of these elements within my pages and the listing on fast serp does not show any description [alltheweb.com]

    >repetitions of the keyword
    I have repeted the main KW 2 times in the title tag

    >keyword density and frequency
    Now this I have a problem with They want NO text on the page
    Can text within comment tags work?

    >Position 1 in the title
    I have moved the KW to position 2 & 7

    >Link pop is important
    Right now there are 37 sites that link to this page
    (is this how to check? link:MYSITE.com)

    The reason I ask this is because I have seen 4/5 of my sites show up the same way on the SERP

    <fast serp>
    1. KW word word word word word word KW word word word
    {no description}
    </fast serp>

    Some of these sites have text on the page some don't (can't)
    All of these sites have title descp. metas
    All of these sites have some good link pop (1 has 1230 links)

    So i guess that there is not much I can do unless i bring up the KW density and frequency by placing text on the page?
