That's part of it. Actually, I have a solid idea what the results will be, based on conversations with information retrieval and indexing gurus whose work is mostly performed on networks. But I can't use what they told me, directly, because of those pesky little confidentiality agreements that they made me sign. So I'm running a small-scale test on factors that are within the control of the average site designer.

You would find that getting rankings is additive: TITLE + META keywords + keywords in high-ranking structural elements + keyword density overall + (search engine quirks) = relevance
