<<< Secrets behind Alta Vista >>>
From Daniel on 19 August '99

I found alta vista extremly unpredictable. It seems go against popular
SE high-ranking-theories:

1. Title
2. Key words concentration
3. KW/KP in Description
4. Key phase or words on top of the page
5. frequency of kw/kp in copy
5.2 links pointing to your site

May be I have over done my page with frequency so alta vista classified
my page as spam.

I still don't understand why alta vista could put some totally unrelated
adult site in the listing for key phase: "hacking pc"!!!

The #1 toppest page is an extremly short page, only repeated KW about
twice, less than 30% concentration!

Can anyone enlight me with alta vista? AV seems using out of the world
algorithm. This is what I found:

1. They take: anti hack, pc security
as "hack pc"

2. They pay not much attention to title.

Another question, if you can get ranked at #3 out of 4000 lists in
infoseek for a keyword/key phase which has over 4000 competitors, how
well am I doing?
