I got wind of this a few days ago.

For people new to SEO it should help you. Just remember not to over do things and keep your page natural and think about the surfers first.

For example it says H2-H6 tags seem more important than H1.

Have a think about why that is... because people spam H1 tags. So spamming H2-H6 tags with keywords wont be the answer. But dotting a few keywords & related keywords in your H2-H6 tags will definately help.

----------------------------

Sistrix analyzed the influence of the following web page elements: web page title, web page body, headline tags, bold and strong tags, image file names, images alt text, domain name, path, parameters, file size, inbound links and PageRank.

* Keywords in the title tag seem to be important for high rankings on Google. It is also important that the targeted keywords are mentioned in the body tag, although the title tag seems to be more important.

* Keywords in H2-H6 headline tags seem to have an influence on the rankings while keywords in H1 headline tags don't seem to have an effect.

* Using keywords in bold or strong tags seems to have a slight effect on the top rankings. Web pages that used the keywords in image file names often had higher rankings. The same seems to be true for keywords in image alt attributes.

* Websites that use the targeted keyword in the domain name often had high rankings. It might be that these sites get many inbound links with the domain name as the link text.

* Keywords in the file path don't seem to have a positive effect on the Google rankings of the analyzed web sites. Web pages that use very few parameters in the URL (?id=123, etc.) or no parameters at all tend to get higher rankings than URLs that contain many parameters.

* The file size doesn't seem to influence the ranking of a web page on Google although smaller sites tend to have slightly higher rankings.

* It's no surprise that the number of inbound links and the PageRank had a large influence on the page rankings on Google. The top result on Google has usually about four times as many links as result number 11.

Hey thanx for the info! But i don't think Google will only look into on page factors. It gives a lot of respect for links.

Thats a no brainer :)
But this report simply looked at the on-page factors, of course off-page factors are taken into consideration too :)

Very helpfull, though I already knew most of it.
Only the h2 is more important then h1 surprised me. But after explanation it seems logical. I competed in a Seo competition last month, ended up 5th in Google but I had a free domain and the winner had a .nl .

This item strikes me as particularly interesting...

Could it be that there actually is a reward for quality over quantity? Nah... I must be dreaming! :wink:
