    This is a basic overview of a weighted percentage values Google gives you for having your keyword in various positions and in certain tags. I have found this to be helpful. Do not use them all, Google does not like that but if you can use a few in natural non-spammy looking ways, do so and it will help your on page rankings.

    Content Keyword Percentages:

    1) Keyword in title tag (6%)
    2) Keywirds as tge first words of the Title Tag (6%)
    3) Keyword in the Root Domain Name (6%)
    4) Keyword in the H1 Headlin Tag (5%)
    5) Keyword in Internal Link Anchor Text on Page (4%)
    6) Keyword in External Link Anchor Text on Page (4%)
    7) Keyword in the first 100 words of HTML on the page (%4)
    8) Keyword in the page URL(3%)
    9) Keyword in other <H> Tags (3%)
    10) Keyword in image ALT text (3%)
    11) Keyword appears more then twice on the page (3%)
    12) Keyword in image name on the page (keyword.jpg) (3%)
    13) Keyword in <b> or <strong> tags (2%)
    14) Keyword in List Items <li> on the Page (3%)
    15) Keyword in <i> or <em> tags (2%)
    16) Keyword in comment tags in the HTML (1%)

    At least put the keyword in the title / url and h 1 tag and the first words of the article. Thanks for the detailed positions despite the validity of the percentages.

    I would take this with a large grain of salt.

    Any one with a basic SEO tool can see that the keyword metrics in the top 10 vary wildly from one niche and one keyphrase to the next. There's no one size fits all approach.

    Only google would have this kind of information. Unless you are from google, i can't really accept your percentages. Though i would assume putting the keywords everywhere you've stated would be a good idea. Personally i'd use all 16 of your points. I wouldn't care if that was considered "over doing it". After all, why give us the option of using our keywords in the tags if we're not suppossed to use them.

    these are totally ambiguous

    there has been no proof that doing anything with the H1 tag helps, and Google as even said that they don't look at the H1 because it can be manipulated

    EDIT: just googled this list and didnt find anything, seems like he made them up

    In the past h1 text (and other header tags) has been super important, it doesn't seem to be weighted very heavily at the moment though.

    In any case these numbers are basically bs and people shouldn't post unsubstantiated info.

    From recent Google blog, I;d say in particular this one is way off

    3) Keyword in the Root Domain Name (6%)

    The rest look like they are at least in the right order.

    These are just basic guidelines I use, I have had some significant experience with the effects these can have. I agree with you guys that the percentages are a little off, I meant to do them point based as in add a few points, or remove a few points for not using them. Sorry for the ambiguous numbers.
