There has been alot of discussion on percentages - hence

what does everybody think is the appropriate % of importance for the following concerns

1. words / html tags
2. kw phrases / total words
3. words / pictures - how important is one against the other
4. interactivity / static

all looking at acheiving #1 say on google

For SEO - Here's my stab:

20% words / 80% html tags

70% kw phrases / 30% total words

80% words / 20% pictures - how important is one against the other

20% interactivity / 80% static

85% words / 15% pictures - how important is one against the other
25% interactivity / 75% static

Web Chicken - If you're confused by these postings, I'm with you...

What, eg, does "interactivity/ static" mean, and what can it possibly have to do with ranking on Google?

Ditto with "words/ pictures," and does Google Picture Search have anything to do with page ranking as I think we're discussing it?

Sorry, I'm either ignorant or confused here... maybe both... by the question as well as the responses. Please clarify.

What, eg, does "interactivity/ static" mean, and what can it possibly have to do with ranking on Google?

The interactivity relates to the content, not to Google ranking. What I meant was, there are ways to have the site be interactive and static at the same time. You do not need to use Flash to have the site be interactive.

All that the above means is hwo much importance we place on each of these items when related to a website and its content.

25% words / 75% html tags

The importance of SEO relies more on the HTML tags, especially when a site does not have alot of content.

75% kw phrases / 25% total words

There must be a balance between the two, but the importance is on the KW phrases. A good ranking site will have a good percentage of keywords in the content......it all comes down to copyright.

85% words / 15% pictures

This goes without saying......you know that the visitors like to see pictures, but the search engines feed off the words.

25% interactivity / 75% static

You should have a little bit of both. The site should be static for the most part, but to keep the user enticed it should entail some degree of interactivity.
