Allintext Algo @ Google

I would say the present google algo is one where allintext is given much
more weight then anything else. If you do an allintext search using any
search term(s) you'll see the sites that are coming up the highest in
the present algo. But one thing puzzles me with allintext, that is what
exactly does google mean by allintext other then the obvious which is
keywords listed on the page? I can see sites with less keywords being
used on their page being listed higher then ones using more and this is
at an allintext search mind you, not a regular general search. So what
else is there to allintext in google's way of thinking? I know if your
site comes up high in anallintext search it will also come up high in
the present algo.

Interesting  contention.  Have you got references/links to support  it?  I
have never heard it before and judging by the compactness of the terms, it
sounds as if someone coined these already.

The major question to figure out and answer (maybe reverse-engineering the
algorithms) remains: what weight is assigned to each of (1)-(4). There are
even  more  factors  to  consider. Don't forget  that  results  pages  are
hand-tweaked,  for  instance, while some sites are banned (and some  would
argue sandboxed too).

Don't  forget that the order of the terms (usually words) matters a  great
deal  too.  It's about flow and proximity between words as much as  it  is
about their existence. Today I read an interesting little item: /

Have a look, for example, at:

In  WordPress, Matt insisted on having the site title at the end, with  an
arrow  pointing left to the page title. This applies to hundreds of  thou-
