    Hi,

    It's better to have your keywords as the first words of the page title, high up in the page text and as the anchor text of links pointing to the page.

    Thanks for the reply.

    But is this very important to have text high in the page or will it not help me very much.

    Im just asking this to find out if i have to remake my pages because at the moment the text part is mainly in bottom.

    It is important, yes, and worth changing your pages for.

    Is it very important - probably not. But I would do it.

    I also sugest you to place your keyword rich content in a <td> which is closest to the top left <td> in your <table>. This way your content will have more importance.
