I was doing site search when I came across Agerhart's response to Marcia's post in this thread.


which refers to Brett's quick rank system.

Since, it's dated april last year, I guess we can have the latest on this.

So Brett, have you updated your quick page rank point system. I liked it the way you put it.

title: 10 points
meta descrip: 5 points
large h1-h2 headings: 5 points
domain name: 3 points
bold or italic text: 2 points
url or filename: 2 points
beginning of a sentence 1.5 points
just usage in text: 1 point
meta keywords: 1 point
title attribute: 1 point
alt tag: .5 point

All members inputs are welcome.

btw, how do I modify my post's title?

I've been looking for a resource like this for weeks.

Just out of curiousity; how did you actually find WebmasterWorld ginga?

Thanks everyone for the great thread. I am a newbie and was referred to WW by a new link partner.

I was fascinated by the "weightings" quick rank information. I have one thing to ask on this topic that I have not seen addressed, but probably missed:

Does Google use some sort of a multiplier algorythm; as opposed to strict addition of point assignments? Suppose your keywords weightings are:

Title = 10 pts
URL = 10 pts

Sum of Google points = (Title pts + URL pts) + (Title kw identical with URL kw = true, then sum is multiplied by 1.5)

I'm fairly new at this, but it seems the sites that WEAVE their targeted keyword phrase throughout the major point categories do better than sites that simply repeat keywords (with the exception of multiple use of keywords in free flow text). So this is the strategy I've adopted.

Any thoughts on this?

Also - is there a definition page where I can find what several of the shorthand terms such as SERP, H1, H2...H5 headings mean?

content stills rules over optimization... If you have 10,000 pages vs 100 The 10,000 page site will always get more traffic if its indexed.
