AltaVista has set out its guidelines for submissions and achieving ranking in considerable detail. Take a look.

Comments anyone?

Woohoo, mega thanks Ace. And to all those who have questioned Altavista link popularity: Here you go.

Wow powerful stuff (and surprising kind of, I'm so used to the SE's viewing us in an adversarial light)... thank you both!

So here's my first "huh?"....
"Also, AltaVista does not reward Web pages that practice useless repetition. Actually, AltaVista only counts to two" So..... that means that if the body of your text uses a keyword say.... four times, the algo ignores the second two entirely??
