It appears that I have decided to get into IM at a difficult time what with the latest updates from Google causing oddities in indexing, de-ranking etc.
Now I am a newbie to all of this so please excuse my questions if they appear rather obvious.
I originally purchased SEOPressor to help with my on page SEO, but found it lacked certain features that I later found in ClickBump SEO. I am using ClickBump SEO! and also one of the ClickBump themes. This plugin is very good in my eyes.
I have been using ClickBump SEO on one of my sites as a test. I find the plugin to be very good at what it does.
However I am now concerned with over optimizing my pages as it seems Google is now penalising sites that have over optimized content. I must stress that the content on my sites is original, written by myself which pertains to the niche I am into, not spun rubbish.
I had read earlier today that keeping keyword density to around 1% is now a good idea with the Google updates, also removing the keyword from the H1 tags, removing any bolded, italicised and underlined keywords. And lastly to remove any image ALT tags with the keyword in them.
Do you think that the above is good practise or should I still follow what plugins like ClickBump SEO suggests?
