I'm interested to hear from others on how quickly changes resulted in improvement.
I did a bunch of changes on 27th and today 30th May I've moved up 4 places to #3.
Changed anchor text in some backlinks I have easy access to reduce keyword in anchor.
On the home page only:
Reduced KW density overall
Reduced KW density in image alts, anchor, description
Removed <meta name="Abstract"
Removed <meta name="Keywords"
Remover title="keywords" from links
On the sitewide links:
Reduced KW usage in sitewide links.
I have no evidence that there is a cuase and effect ie the 4 place move might be coincidental to these changes but I'd like to think that the changes have caused the effect. Is 3 days too quick for this to be the case?
