Are we 'spamming'?
with our chosen keywords

Our main page is like this:
Categories:
Red keyword
Blue Keyword
Yellow Keyword
etc (for 15 categories)

our intro text has the keyword in there once.
our header image has a mouse over with our 3 keywords listed and our filenames on the entire website are all keyword_asfas.jpg/gif

We have very little text on the front page but mostly products in different forms..either on sale, new items, or limited stock..

our product descriptions are like this when you click on them:
-KEYWORD: RED WIDGET (in large text)
This keyword is probably the best for the money if oyu look around for red or blue widgets.
Keyword Model #sdfsdf (instead of just model#sdfsd)
The product image is named Keyword_sdfsdf

We have several articles on our webpage right off the main page with our keywords in them with a density of about 4-5%

We are just now starting a link campaign but only have 3 links (just started yesterday) that are recipricol and somewhat relevent (i am not sure of the importance of relevence anymore as most of our high ranked competition has link to and from ANYONE for ANYTHING)

SO I am wondering, are we...spamming? Am I trying TOO hard here?

WE have 800 pages listed (poor rank for keywords) on msn.
0 on the big g
and 0 on Y
Actually we do have ones there, for our eb*y store! ARGH!

Tips, suggestions, wanna take a look - sticky me. Or let me know right here if you think so.

Please only people with proven techniques reply. I see some people posting: How do I arrange my metas in one forum area, then responsd to people with advice two seconds later about SEO...

Thank you very much!

Yes you are spamming, if you didn't you wouldn't even worry about it... but who does not spam to get their site up in the rankings?

The question is, will search engines think that you're spamming to much. Wasn't it what you wanted to ask?

and you have wrong attitude asking questions... nobody knows everything, even greatest SEO's any knew ideas.

Art, sorry for the 'attitude'. :) YOu have to realize however, that frustration has set in. Common reaction from people with small minds. :) I never proclaim to know a thing about anything, except that I don't know a thing about anything.

That said, I read that report that showed what sites topped out in rank, how many keywords ..density...etc. And found it very interesting as YES I think I have too many keywords for a density and too few actual unique WORDS in my first page.

I have an associate that uses a ENTRY page - where he puts a sitemap - a links page(with good pr) - and contact info. He has a pr of 6! And gets good traffic to his store already and it's new. Mines actually older and hasn't seen one purchase (not that I expected any different) we have a quality professional looking website, and sell quality low cost items. We have a good thing going actually.

So I am wondering if anyone else uses this technique..and if so...what about using a nice document like 'why shop with us' with the targetted keywords in the right density , with the right amount of words and the right amount of bold etc in the paragraph below the entry page. It's not really clocking, and it surely isn't keyword stuffing if it lends merit to why you should shop with us. Just KILLS me to have someone have to click that ENTER button , making that extra step to enter our store.
