Are These Problems For SEO?

Although Traffic Travis shows A or A+ for the keywords I target on some of my pages, I noticed what "could" be a few problems in the report... any suggestions on how to fix them or are they ok? I use the Platinum SEO Wordpress plugin if that helps...

1. There are 8 H3 tags... the first is a keyword... the other 7 are things like "Comments"...

2. The first 50 words on the page are my keywords from the title followed by my site name, tagline and category headings from my top nav bar...

3. The top 20 links are categories and tags instead of relevant product pages from my site that I linked to in my post...

4. A couple of my top 20 words come from things like my customer service pages... the word "Policy" for example... (Disclosure Policy, Privacy Policy, etc)

Having many H3 tags is fine, no need to worry about this.

The first 50 words that Traffic Travis sees is also the same as what the search engines will see, so this is also nothing to worry about.

You could nofollow categories and tags through your SEO plugin's settings page.

You should noindex those pages. You can do that through the Platinum SEO settings for each particular page.

Your keyword should be within the first 50 words of your article (excluding the title) for SEO but make sure the article flows as naturally as possible.
