Does this mean that while before saying create a widget, creates a widget and creating a widget would help you to rank for create a widget, now mentioning these variations could be seen as keyword spamming and affect rankings for create a widget and maybe other keywords as well?
Yes, I think keywords are grouped and that overuse of keyword and variations will add to your spam score ...ie
Keyword Stuffing 1.0 "This seo walks into a bar, large bar, popular bar, local bar, friendly bar etc.
Keyword Stuffing 2.0 "This seo walks into a bar,pub,club,wine bar,inn etc.
Can you also mention what you read about keywords in on-site links? Anything maybe about what these links should include?
Mainly I have read Tedster and Brinked on this and I think overuse of keyword in internal links could add to your spam score. I think it was brinked that suggested grouping navigation of the site under headings which to me sounds like a sound idea... ie
Instead of :
Also if you are within a category is it really necessary to keep mentioning the category to the user. A breadcrumb within a category could look something like this...
Home > Widgets > Red Widgets
But maybe should look more like this
Home > Widgets > Red
