the more content then the more times a keyword can be repeated
Another valid point, yet a tightrope to walk on. Overuse = flag = boring copy. One might assume two references tops per keyword per x number of characters per tag. What would be the value of x?
I know I'm going overkill with this but as the overall quality of website code evolves, is it not fair to assume heretofore lesser concerns will rise in value, and probably sooner as opposed to later?

yes i get that although more content could also allow the keywords to be used in a natural way in cotent.
i am certainly not sold on this being true but it is interesting i think. overuse would depend on if evaluated as a number or percentage.

That's an interesting thought. My assumption though is it's already via both. Now we have an x & y. I need a beer....

I think it's very marginal too. The key to great search engine rankings is and has (almost) always been writing great stuff that is relevant, that people want to link to, and talk about in tweets facebook etc. Content is still King

I believe content is king and quality content is the best practice but it's not secret that Google has a problem with "content farms" that produce tons of low quality content and manage to get it ranking. One big element of the puzzle is links. Great content is one way to generate links but there are plenty of other ways (some legit, some not) that also work.

The question is how many of google search results have this problem.
It seems like the huge majority get to #1 (or on the first page) because they belong there. They are the relevant search result, and I honestly think you just have to make your content relevant. If you think you can beat Google at their own Algo, go ahead. Some people manage to make it I'm sure, just be 100% sure this is the approach you want to make instead of long term.

I'm talking about sites like Demand Media, eHow, Mahalo and others which have done very well in Google. Some of them were hit by the recent algorithm update. Other's weren't terribly affected.

My point is not that you should try to game Google but that inbound links are probably as important as the content they point to and you won't do well unless you concentrate on creating good content AND promoting it.

Right on, and often they are the two sides of the same thing. Good content automatically get more links, than a similar page with poor content. This is the core of PageRank and why it has worked for Google.
