6. Keywords included in URL(s) - not really a factor (other than indirectly)
7. Keywords included in Domain Name - not really a factor (other than indirectly)
8. Keywords included in Title Tag - a big factor
I kind of wonder about this one jill, I once optimized a site for sugar free paradise and achieved #2 in Google and MSN. I went to check out the site that beat me out and it was sugarfreeparadise.com.
Now it could have been because there were many links on the page with sugarfreeparadise in them.
(the site I optimized was testing001.com, which is down now because it was a testing site.)
I have two questions:
Do you still think keywords in the url are not worth much?
Can the search engine read keywords from a string of text that contain no spaces? It seems to be the case for sugarfreeparadise.com.

Yes, even more so these days. Other than the indirect benefit already suggested when others link using the URL.
As far as I know, they can't. Google engineers have said they don't, as well.

Maybe they tried and decided not to do it.
Stemming seems to have been refined to a certain extent over the years. It no longer seems as prevalent as it once was.
