The data used to develop the performance chart is extracted from the web page URLs that you provided. Each site was analysed and 78 different parameters we assessed on your page to get a ranking value which is then expressed as a percentage.

Search engine ranking is based on the words or phrases submitted to the search engine by the user. The objective of any site therefore should be to obtain the best possible ranking by ensuring that the appropriate words and phrases are present on the page (in the appropriate context and at the correct frequency).
Search engines index the page not only on these words, but also n the locations and usage of the words on the page. The keyword ranking algorithm essentially searches the page for all occurrences of the keywords provided and ranks each words or word combination on where the words are used and how frequently these are used.
Tests are performed on the number of occurrences of each key word submitted. If the frequency of any keyword is too high, this is considered to be 'unnatural' and the keyword is flagged as potential a spam word. This is an important test because Google and Bing perform similar tests on keywords and sites may be penalised if any words are considered to be spam.
