    Which one (or both?) do you use in your URL, page title, and h1 tag?

    Those are where the majority of your on-site SEO weight comes from.

Well, the thing that I want to discuss is what should be the limit on number of times the keyword is repeated in title/meta text.

    I hope it makes sense.

    Mostly on the body article and 1 keyword on the title (the most relevant with my blog's theme) I use glype theme in the title and glype template in the article..

    Since I am using pretty permalink hence the url is the same with the title

    hhmmm... gonna start to use H1 more often then...

    Its surprising that many sites are not optimised at all. For example h1 missing, no ALT tags for images, poor image file names. I'm currently working on a site where none of the 'competion' sites on the first pages of google are on-site optimised at all. Some however, have good content and backlinks.

    Is it correct that keywords at the bottom right corner are helpful?

    Most of the time this is due to ignorance on the part of web developers, but sometimes it is because many CMS's make SEO really hard to do.

    Web robots don't really have any idea what "bottom right corner" means. Load one of your web pages in your web browser of choice and then view the source code through that web browser. That's what web robots see. Location is a very different concept to them than it is to us.

    But back to keywords... search engines love them and search engines also hate them. Search engines consider piles of keywords to be "keyword stuffing" and they (automatically or manually) apply penalties for that. But, we SEO's know that keyword stuffing can also get us long-tail rankings -- so we're always looking for ways to keyword stuff that the search engines won't see as spam.

    Tag clouds? Just a pile of keywords, but somehow seen as "acceptable" spam.

    Heck, I put Amazon book descriptions on some of my pages just for their keyword stuffing value.

    I spent about 4 hours the other day fixing the case on hundreds of my page titles in order to better appeal to searchers.

    I am careful to avoid too many keywords in titles. I try to keep them vague enough to get the users to click to find out what's on the page.

    I avoid unnecessary repetition, as I think it looks spammy.

    What is your opinion on adding videos to content sites? I saw that here: http://www.tech-faq.com/voip.shtml and thought it would be a cool addition, although I don't see any SEO benefits from it (except from natural linking building factor, because the page is so informative).

    I do like the extra h2 it gives me, but mostly it's exactly what you said -- I am hoping to make the page more "authoritative" and therefore more likely to gain return visitors and inbound links.
