Keyword density
How much is too much ?

Msg#: 205 posted 6:34 pm on Jun 17, 2001 (gmt 0)

I am a newbie so forgive me if this may seem like a novice question.

I read somewhere that there is such a thing as pages getting a spam penalty for having a too "high" kw density.

The post said that on av if your pages had a kw density over 9.5% you would get a spam penalty, but if your kw density was below that cut off you could get very high rankings.

Anyone know about this ?

this is given that no obvious "spam" is used.

How can you find out the kw density on your pages ?

count the words and divide by your keyword ? How about for phrases ?

I am lost on this, I thought a high non spam keyword density was a good thing.

Your time and energy will be much better spent on making your Site informative (with lots of unique content)and easily read with focused marketing copy. If you are able to draw in potential clients with dramatic copy and invite and feed the major SE's with well optimized pages focused on traffic generating key words/phrases then you will be fine. For the most part, as long as your copy flows well after you have strategically placed your key words/phrases within it, you won't have to worry about spamming the Engines.

Thanks for the advice. Also I should have read more of the forum before I posted that, there is a very good tool here to judge kw density.

cheers !
