    I just got an inktomi subscription a couple of days ago and so far have only had about 15 clicks.

    How many clicks on average could you expect from inktomi for an average ranked url?

    Also, what kind of factors does ink take into consideration for ranking? I know the first sentence, meta tags and title are important, what about links in, keyword density.etc.

    Depends on how many people are searching for the keywords your page is ranked highly for.

    Density & prominence are important (at least they are on my list when optimizing a page for Inktomi).
    Links in - maybe, but I have had good rankings without any links in, so maybe MaryMark can clarify whether this is important in Inktomi.

    What do you mean by 'an average ranked url'?

    I have some pages that get 20 click thrus a day and others get more.

    I think you pretty much covered what Ink takes into consideration. Just start tweaking and you will find out how much traffic and what is important for the keyword or phrase you are targeting.

    Link popularity is a factor at Inktomi, though if you are using paid inclusion they kinda ignore that.

    However, you'll never rank top ten on a very competitive keyphrase (like online casino, for instance) without a healthy amount of links.

    How long is a piece of string?

    At my house, it is always exactly one inch to short.
