Thread: Does this work? Non-hidden keywords in the footer.

  1. #1

    Does this work? Non-hidden keywords in the footer.

    I was doing some research and came accross an article which ranks well for a fairly competitive search phrase - top 10 in Google. When I got to the end I saw this:
    Related terms: how to install a wall mount sink, how to install a wall mounted sink, how to install a wallmount sink, how to install a wallmounted sink, installing a wall mount sink, installing a wall mounted sink, installing a wallmount sink, installing a wallmounted sink, wall mount sink installation, wall mounted sink installation, wallmount sink installation, install wall mount bathroom sink, install wall mounted bathroom sink, DIY
    The text was smaller than the rest of the page but it is black on white (high contrast). Normally I see this on spam pages where the text is hidden. Does keyword "insertion" like this work? Is it considered stuffing?

    It looks like they do it on every page. I've never seen it before.

    Helps in MSN and Yahoo, but a better tactic is to make separate pages for fewer keywords and work them in more thoroughly (H1, title, etc). I use it on a homepage limitedly, just to get a few keywords mentioned.

    Skitz is very clear about what behaviour caused him to start this site up. His ego is way too big and fully engaged - rmccarley

    It was just too much text. I couldn't read it. - rmccarley

    I usually break things into smaller catagories like you mentioned Michael, but do you actually put a list of kws in your page?

    Oh, no, just work them into a smaller-text-ed paragraph. I do it sensibly, keeping in mind that it might make it into the snippet displayed in the serps.

    Try searching here and looking for the site in my sig, should be around #7. This way you can see what I mean by snippet.

    Oh. That's pretty cool and tastefully done.

    Something to remember - thanks!

    EDIT: Looks like I already repped you. I'll catch you again though, it's a great tip.
