Parts of 3 keywords phrase are repeated as single or double words

Is it a problem for Google?

I actually target those keywords phrases:
k1 k2 k3
k4 k2 k3

I also have on the page those keywords phrases:
k2 k3
k1 k2

Just to be sure that we understand the same thing, a keywords phrase is between stop words like or, the, and,...

So, is those 2 and 1 keywords phrases have chances to put my page marked spam by G for my two target 3 keywords phrases?

Thank you

The way you are doing it is good, not spam. It would be bad to have your target keyword phrases repeated without any variation.

Google uses keyword stemming which means individual keywords that make up your keyword phrases can also benefit from variation.


These would all contribute to the success of your page.

It is a good idea to check your page's keyword density to make sure you do not over-optimise. Try these tools:

Perhaps start off by aiming for about 8% for your target phrases, although there is no such thing as perfect keyword density and it depends on lots of different factors.

What are your current rankings like for your main KWs? Not just in Google.

Do your incoming links include your KWs? How many links?

Do your internal links include your KWs?

Does your page title include your KWs?

Do your alt attributes include your KWs?

Check out these things for your site and for your top 3 competitors to give you an idea of the right mix of factors for your industry.

Without considering any of these other things, I wouldn't be too concerned about your keyword density as it is.
