my competitor put keywords in alt for normal text links and his kw density quite low than mine but still shows some results in the search engines. Anyone has any idea?

You should try getting more content & more links, give it a month and you will be on top depending how much work you put in!

Are you sure he put a "ALT" in a link? "Alt" belongs to an <img command.

<img height="30" alt="keyword phrase" src="/images/logo.gif" border="0">

<a title="keyword phrase" href="/keyword-phrase/">Keyword Phrase</a>

But to put a 'ALT in a link like this violates most HTML design rules.

<a alt="keyword phrase" title="keyword phrase" href="/keyword-phrase/">Keyword Phrase</a>

Are you sure this is a NEW tactic? ALT Text spamming is a thing of the past for competitive keyword phrases that I have seen through testing. Non-competitive - it works well, but seriously, why go through all of that hassle for 1-2 visitors a day?

there are known as titles and not alt tags. alt tags are for images..anyways these titles dont hold much in the density taken in account by the crawlers.
