How many times should a KW appear on your splash page? Is loading your page with the required KW a good suggestion?

Keyword density varies from engine to engine. A rule-of-thumb is to keep it under 10% for the top keyword on the page.

I'm not sure I understand your second question?

Thanks, what I meant was repetitive use of the kw on the page. But I have gathered this constitutes spam and is a no no. Thanks again

It isn't how many times it can appear, it is the density of those appearances. If you have 100 words on your home page, your top kw could appear 10 times. If you have 1000 words, your top kw could appear 100 times...

So at about what density would set off the "spam alarm"?

Scott,

I have been taught that the keywords should be between 3% and 8% mark vs overall words on the page. Of course the best keyword you would shoot for the 8% mark.
