I place my keywords everywhere - in the domain, in the title, in the text, in the headings, in the choosen links, in the tags. And I control their density. It must be between 3 and 5% of the content, neither more nor less. If its higher than 5% its spam, if its lower than 3% it wont be recognized by search engines as topic.
