Hello all.

While researching for keywords/keyphrases, I found myself typing many phrases with the same word in them. For example: widget parts, used widgets, new widgets, buy widgets and so on.

What I want to know is if this is considered as spamming for the keyword "widget".

Thank you for your attention!

Ok, let's hope this will clear things up:

My page about cars has these keyphrases in the keywords meta-tag: car parts, used cars, new cars, buy cars, old cars, used car parts, car rental, car insurance...

Is this considered as spamming? I mean using the word "car" so many times, even when in keyphrases.

That would depend on the way you are using them. As long as the content is fluent, then no this is not spamming. If I were you, I would try to concentrate on no more then 2-3 keyword phrases per page.

This way you can really focus in on specific content on each page. If you follow these guidelines, you will not even have to worry about spamming.

I am not 100% sure this would help but maybe someone else here could clarify is this would help..but you could try setting your meta keyword to something like

auto used new widget widgets part parts

with no comma's...Not 100% sure that will do that trick though..any ideas?

How can I say this, if you repeat a single word over and over again of course you are using 'saturation tatics'and the SE's will take a look see and move on. Your keywords must be in your text.

You do realize that SEs see 'widget' and 'widgets' as the same word. In other words making it plural doesn't change keep it from appearing as stuffing.

Just run search on G for literally these words and received totally different results.

Just tested this myself, one of my sites ranks #1 for the phrase (widget widget widgets) but the same page can't be found within the first 200+ with the phrase (widget widget widget).

Maybe stemming doesn't apply to words which are plural?

How about synonyms for 'cars'?

I mean autos, automobiles, singular vs plural and other ways to avoid excess repetition.
I wouldn't use 'horseless carriages' unless you deal with antique cars of course.

One wonderful trick is to find a trusted friend who is well read, literate, and just good with words.
Bribe that person with a few good beers (not Bud or Coors) and ask for help.
Explain possible penalties for repeated keywords.
There is no telling what other flaws he/she might turn up! Good luck -Larry
