I would think with all your algo figuring out stuff that surely you'd find a little keyword density variable in there somewhere, no?

When a search engine analyzes the text on the page, they conduct:
1. Linearization - where all the terms on the page are combined into a set of pure words
2. Tokenization - where formatting and spacing is removed
3. Filtration - where stopwords are removed
4. Stemming - where terms are reduced to their base derivatives so that term vector mapping is made easier (i.e. computer, computing and computation would all become "comput")
After that's done, they might do term counts and then use these in combination with normalization formulas (to account for documents of different lengths). SEs also use weighting, so that headlines, subheadlines, and the first paragraph or section of a document receives greater weight than subsequent sections.
In addition, search engines have long used term vectors, or the relationship between words and phrases to conduct topic analysis and document focus. The metric we use as keyword density is almost completely useless.
I am working on building something that will measure kw terms in the same manner as the search engines. I've actually contracted some friends who work in natural language processing and am supposed to meet them tomorrow night!

Looking forward to news about its progress!.

I think/hope that this would fit into the "myths" category!
Being #1 in the SERPs isn't necessarily a sign of good SEO.

I think it would depend on your definition of "good SEO"!

2) Buying adwords will make your site climb in the organic listings
I know I am being pedantic, but I am always speaking to people who swear the above are true. Not the same people obviously
3) Automated optimisation software can get you ranking for competitive terms.
4) Content is king
5) Links are king
We all know that there is no king in SEO, there is just an army of little factors that all combine to earn you money. We also all know that conversions are king

The search engines can't index dynamically generated sites.
Posted 22 July 2005 - 12:17 PM
Didn't that used to be a truth?
Posted 22 July 2005 - 12:54 PM
Yes she has; spam will get your site banned.

Bill's "myth" says that ranking #1 means the you've done the best SEO.
Obviously, your SEO effort could be good, bad, indifferent or non-existent and still get you a #1 ranking!

So, although I agree with Karon on that myth, by saying "always" it's actually true, because you don't have to 'always' do anything when it comes to SEO.
If you're going to have a key word where seo is concerned, it has to be "depends" because everything in seo is dependent upon other factors.
