I noticed that different keyword density analysers give different results for the same page. Does anyone know about a credible keyword density analyser?
I personally beleive keyword density is overrated. Yes you need to use your keyphrase in your text, but there is not magic keyword density % that if you hit, you are going to rank well.
Of course, I'm still most of of traffic from PPC instead of regular listings, so I'm not doing as well as I'd like. :)
We use a cumulative keyword density goal on all of our pages of 10%. The site has 3 primary keywords and a dozen or so secondary keywords. On all pages on our site the cumulative keyword density is at least 10% (meaning 1 out of every 10 words on the site is either a primary or secondary keyword).
Pages with alot of content on them are even higher (15-20% in some cases depending on the site). But I wouldn't push it past that. 20% is what I consider the safety limit. Many SE's tend to penalize pages/sites with higher KWD than that because they think it's just a doorpage.
