Please help me Obi-wan ........
At the end of the day if you do something purely for your users then its pretty unlikely that it would be considered spam by a real person.
Of course this all assumes that the search engines index the title arrtibute text which is something I'm not too sure of - after all if they don't index it then they are very unlikely to use it to just spam!
It is best not to repeat the exact same keyphrase more than twice.
And to expand further "black & blue widgets" "blue & black widgets" "widgets black & blue" "widgets blue & black" are different keyphrases as order of words is important in highly competivity phrases.
Be on topic though.
Yes the title tag is indexed in the header i do know.
That is because that is where the title element [w3.org] (as opposed to the title attribute [w3.org]) belongs. And hopefully it will be the content of the title element, i.e. the text enclosed by the title start and end tag that gets indexed. ;)
I am just not sure if it will be indexed if its in the body as well.
Unlike the TITLE element, which provides information about an entire document and may only appear once, the title attribute may annotate any number of elements. Please consult an element's definition to verify that it supports this attribute.
Hope this helps
