I use Yahoo Sitebuilder, and I have top rankings for my keywords -- my keyword density is just over 2%. I am learning to hand code, which would obviously remove code bloat, which would, therefore, lead to a much higher keyword density. I don't want to mess with my Google rankings and am wondering if Google would then consider my site spammy if the density goes up too much.
This is my first post, but I learned so much about SEO from your forums -- that's why my site has been doing so well!

Thanks for the feedback. The tool I usually use to check keyword density was showing a much higher number after handcoding, but I discovered, due to a slight "error" -- I had inserted 2 dashes, like the ones I just typed (--), that all the content after that was not being "read"; once I changed it to 1 dash, the keyword density went right back to where it was originally (where I want it to be!)
I'm sure I will have more questions. I LOVE learning this stuff!
