I built and converted my pages using Analyze It to check them out. Usually my page title, page file name, page headline, and page description all had the keyword in it. In addition, the keyword also showed up several times in the body of the page and in subheadings. Analyze It said AOK, so I published the page.
Now I'm reading more and more that Google is penalizing sites for "keyword" stuffing. I know SBI! has warned about this, but I'm also seeing more and more top ten SERP ranked sites that apparently purposefully avoid having keywords in the page title, headline, and description. Some have suggested that Google's algorithms have improved to the point that they can figure out what a site is about with only one or two keywords at most, and sometimes none.
My questions are:
. Has SBI! thinking changed on this?
. Should I avoid having the same keyword in title, file name, description, body, and subheadings?
. If so, should I rebuild my pages reflecting the new thinking, deleting keywords, etc?
.Has Analyze It changed to assist in the rebuilding process?[/list]
As always, I know SBI! will have an answer that lets me sleep at night.
