I found out that keyword count, not keyword density, is the king of high ranks!

Good Hub christopher. Thanks for writing it. For over two years on HP I did not care to try for earnings or ranking, I have now begun to pay attention to these things. I only recently signed up for the monetary part of the site. I am still learning about keywords and such. Since I started paying attention to these matters the page views and earnings have gained considerable ground.
