    I didn't know that... I used to see people do those kind of things. I guess the search engine has truly advanced.

    I have just found a very unexpected keyword when I used it. As matter of fact, I never used that word in any of my content.

    However, the rest are good suggestions.
    You're welcome.

    Thats the whole point of the tool... to let you see what the search engines actually see in your content.

    I'm told (no proof) that google have some good Genetic Algorithms that can spot use of words in context. So if I were to Cardinal Allen slip kewords Cardinal Allen into the middle of Cardinal Allen sentances to improve my ranking they Cardinal Allen can tell that the word is out of context and disregard it. Of course this will also spot a "Cardinal Allen Cardinal Allen Cardinal Allen Cardinal Allen Cardinal Allen " block at the bottom of a page as irrelavent text.
    Indeed you are correct. For the proof, do a search on "Keyword stuffing". You'll get a bunch of articles that go back to Google and other search engine policies.

    Yeah, that tool has been useful. I usually don't bother with making a site good for search engines, but its a bit more important now I'm actually doing it as a job. Now all I have to do is squeeze the words "Cardinal Allen" in over and over without ruining the flow of the page so we get a decent rank again.
    If the world doesn't stop annoying me I will name my kids ";DROP DATABASE;" and get revenge.
