good day everybody!

i know this question of mine is discussed lots of time. but i was wondering whats the exact answer, or could we summarize all the tips.

what's the best ratio for keywords density for each page? do i need to maintain an exact ratio? is it disadvantageous to have greater ratio?

Count - Word - Density
x kw %

im refering to all major search engines.

thanks

Wow Marcia,
"16.30% to 17.35%"
That's really percise, how do you know this?

Hybernate when u say keyword density, do u mean amount of desired words divided by total amount of words in the page?

yes the amount of kw % in certain page. againts the kw appearance.

something in my mind... does the font of your content matter your ranking? FONT <--?

>>how do you know

Don't *know* Allan, but have experienced it over time. Just happen to have hit the sweet spot with Inktomi on some sites with the 17.nn% figure, and have just hit a #2 at Yahoo out of 35M with the 16.nn% figure, which almost made me fall over in shock.

There is a difference between the KWD for a 2-word or 3-word phrase and the density for each of the individual words within that phrase, as well as a difference in the weight of the individual words within a phrase. And KWD is not the only factor - it's also the page structure, and how and where on the page the keywords are used. It never does come down to only one thing.

To me, Yahoo is nothing more than the old Inktomi we all know and love, all prettied up with an Estee Lauder beauty makeover - new hair-do and a fancy makeup job. Doesn't get much prettier. ;)

"16.30% to 17.35%"
Would that not get you into trouble on Google?
I thought over 7% was risky on G?

Yours in ignorance and hoping to learn
