- Use of Key Words
If you find that your frequency lists do not contain as many keywords as you anticipated you may also want to consider re-writing some of your text to be more keyword rich because many search engines carry out a similar analysis to rank the relevance of your page. You may want to consider the lists generated by competing sites as well to ensure that you are highlighting your site appropriately. The ratio of key word density in web text is judged to be between 3-9% of full text for most search engines.
