    How Keywords Affect Your Rankings - Here’s a list...


    (Page 3 of 3 )

    Here’s a list of how most search engines prioritize keyword positions, from most to least:

    1. Domain name.

    2. Page title.

    3. Headings (i.e. H1, H2, etc.).

    4. Body text (the first 2 to 3 KB usually counts more).

    5. Meta tags (especially description).

    6. Links (including keywords in the URL or link text of links to you).

    7. Alt text (the ‘alt’ descriptions for your pictures).

    Really, though, keyword density is one of those areas where you’ll have trouble on your hands if you try to second guess the search engines. Be cautious.

    As your knowledge about SEO continues to grow, you will begin to see how SEO fits into the overall scheme of things. Knowing how something relates to the rest of the world is important too.
