Hi all

I just want to know if a webpage has bunch of keywords linked to a certain domain, will it be treated as keyword stuffing and can it harm SEO?

Any suggestions?

Keyword stuffing to one is different to another.

Clearly, if the site has a page built primarily to 'stuff' it with, it's of little value to the visitor, and likely to be penalised, if discovered.

Hi Yuvi,

Keyword stuffing as it literally means is stuffing your page content with the same term i.e. ABC in page title, meta description, content, internal linking etc. In short, an overdose of the same keyword in such a way that it does not seem natural or for the benefit of reader.

I think your question is different here. Keywords/anchor texts linked to a domain does not mean keyword stuffing. I think what you need is diversification in anchor text used for linking to other domains as well in domains that you link to.

Hope this helps.

Yes, Keyword stuffing can harm your SEO. Keywords stuffing is black hat technique which is ran to get instant rankings.

This is where the concept of stuffing leaves the rails.

For example if I create a web site about a species, let's say "Birds" then the menu at the top and bottom of the page will include multiple references to the subject matter. So too will many hyperlinks within the page body and any headings...

- Bird Calls
- Bird Feed
- Bird Migration
- Bird Nesting
- Bird Watchers

* multiplied by all of the different types of birds.

Anyone not appreciating this as good practice needs to get a life.
