I have couple of queries.
On a site I am doing I am targeting one keyword on all the pages (A persons name), my keyword density for each page for this term is between 3-5% which I am told is optimal.
But when I use a tool to check the denisty for the term sitewide it comes up way too much and says its 'spam' - Should I worry about sitewide density or do search engines just treat it page to page and not the site as a whole?
And I have a phrases query -
Say I am doing a famous actresses pictures page and the page denisty is optimal for 'famous actresses' and 'pictures' as two seperate things, but the actual phrase 'famous actresses pictures' is very very low, could I still do well for the term 'famous actresses' pictures'? (Im just talking about denisty here, I know there is a lot more to doing well like backlinks etc).

[edit reason] no specific KWs, please - thx [/edit]

could I still do well for the term 'famous actresses' pictures'?Sure, you can still rank well for the whole term. Like you said, KW density is only one part of the algorithm.

Not just talking about it, but actually going to the trouble to use a tool to check it!
I'll bet a nickel the energy you're devoting to even bothering to think about keyword density could be much better spent on locating and remedying all the missed opportunities for cross-linking pages on your website.
