    I have 12 KW I'm trying to rank, and I want to know what guidelines to follow with headings and text/html ratio?

    Should I just focus on the top money making keyword, and put that in the h1 tag, then for the h2, 2 of the next top kw's in that, and about 2-3 other kw in the h3? And what about h4-6?

    Here's what I found on a guide:

    Utilize one <h1> tag per page. It should support the theme established in the Title and Meta Description by using one of the page's top keywords

    • As many as required H2 elements to denote sections on the page (you should really only need one or two or 3 if you are keeping your page concise.
    • Consider using H3 Elements for useful link groups to other relevant sources, or for information not immediately relevant to the page and so ?3rd? in the pecking order.

    As for html/text ratio, I have about 15%. I am guessing I need to add more text to get it around 25%?

    Any advice or thoughts, thanks.

    You should use one target keyword per page when you write your content. Don't put multiple keywords on the same page unless they are synonymous or plural versions of the main keyword. It is best to include them in header tags and also throughout the main copy. If you include a keyword in a header, make sure the content underneath the header is about the keyword.

    There really aren't any rules as far as search engines are concerned about how many keywords there should be per page however when a search engine returns a document that is most relevant to a user's query, it is much easier to return a document that revolves around that query as opposed to one that may contain it along with many other themes.

    Here is some good info on the subject,


    Hope that helps,
