Hey Everyone,

I'm writing a blog post on keyword density and plan to review a few tools. There are a few good ones that I make use of personally when writing for clients but was wondering what other Warriors are using. How do you guys check the density of your content and web pages, and how accurate are these checkers? Any input appreciated.

      Thanx J,

      Yup, I do too, and find that it helps. But what about the words and phrases one repeats unintentionally while focusing on those money terms. Hehe, especially when writing loads of content -- keeping track of all of them could prove painful.

If one of them fits, it goes in; if not, I keep on trucking. Those don't count towards the primary KWD, so I'm not worried about them. At most, they'll get mentioned 3-5 times anyways.

          Ha, Ok, fair enough. Nothing like the good ol' eyes and brain, huh.

            Truth be told, after going cross-eyed looking at the phrases people were finding my pages for, I quit worrying about keywords in all but the most basic sense. In other words, if I read a post or article and it sounds like the keyword is coming up too many times, I change it until it does sound right.

              Yup, I agree, going back to the basics -- just proofread your content. In any case, from an SEO perspective keyword density isn't that important anymore, if even at all.

              Problem is, most of my clients believe that it is. I get still many requests for densities of 4% and up, and then its multiple keywords as well. This is where a checker comes in handy.

              When I write for myself, however, I use keyword tools merely as a precaution; to avoid accidental stuffing and repetition.

      Currently Google likes to have between 1.5-2.0% kwd on any given page. I write my articles up to 1.5% and then my widgets, title, domain name, etc., make up the other .5%.

      (That means 15 mentions in 1000 words.)

      Exactly the right amount of keyword density mentioned by you JaryCu.I too don't have any keyword density checker but yes if i need to have a look on them i just use the formula for it.

      Keyword Density = (Nkr / Tkn) x 100
      Where,
      Density = your keyword density
      Nkr = how many times you repeated a specific keyword
      Tkn = total words in the analyzed text

    This is the Keyword Density Analyzer that I use. I like it 'cause it gives cloud version, plain list as well as combined version, so it makes it easier for me to analyze the keyword density.

    There are too many keyword density shenanigans going on for Google to give a damn about the metric anymore. Once an SEO metric goes mainstream on the forums, you can bet Google is shifting much of its weight to other metrics.

      Isn't keyword density an outdated, irrelevant, AltaVista-era concept?
      Yes, it is. However, relative keyword density is not. If your site is about cucumbers, and you are competing for the search term 'cucumbers', but there is more content about 'ipod' or 'mom' or 'Elvis' than 'cucumbers', your site's performance will be affected.
