Keyword Density and Analysis

Let's review the definition of keyword density. Keyword density is a ratio expressed as a percentage from the number of times a keyword or phrase appears on a page compared to the total number of words on that page. If a page has 200 words and one key word appears on that page 10 times, the keyword density is 5%.

Knowing how often you can put a keyword or phrase on a page without being penalized by the search engines for trying to take advantage of them is like finding a magic formula. Insert too few key words and your competition will be on page one instead of you. I recommend using free keyword density for the analysis.

When asked for their recommended safe keyword density range to use, their advice would be 1.5% to 6.5% and I recommend 4% as the target number. By now you're probably wondering, how you can easily count the total number of words on a page and then get the proper ratio or percentage without spending long hours counting words and key words.

While the target density is 4% to 6.5% on the high end, which would be for the single word or phrase that best represents the theme of your overall website. The second and still very important keyword for a given page should be included a like number of times, yet in your extended list of key words in descending order they can be used nearer the 1.5% low end to maintain readability. After all, a web page should be designed for visitors first, and search engines will reward pages that read naturally.
