In the Page Analysis section of XSitePro you will notice (in the summary screen) a number of suggested actions, on the left side of the screen:

 

piece_page_analysis_recommended_actions

 

 

These actions are suggested based on a series of rules, the defaults for which are presented on this screen for adjustment should you so wish.

 

The reason these settings have been made available to you is simply that, over time, SEO optimization rules will naturally vary and so in order to keep pace with these variations XSitePro enables you to fine-tune these settings over time so that you can be sure you are assessing your pages against the current thinking.

 

There are a total of fifteen different thresholds that can be adjusted in this screen, each of which is explained below:

The default value (and point above which this recommendation is made) is 20 keywords by default.
