It's also interested in repeated content to see if it's a spam site or not too! – Kyle Jan 10 '11 at 13:18

Title, Body, Metatags and other people's links to your websites.

Also, consider setting up landing pages for specific keywords. Google is interested in relevancy above almost all else. Have pages specificly design to target relevant keywords, with uber relevant content. Google will thank you for it.
