Search Engine Optimization Strategies ~ Keyword Density

Not content with your site’s page rank? Of course you want to be on the first twenty search results when somebody typed in the keyword you are targeting. However, you are apparently getting nowhere. Perhaps it’s time to do something about it.

— Keyword Density Misconceptions

One of the first things you should check is your page’s keyword density. Check your articles’ content. They say, to increase the traffic in your site, you need to maintain a keyword density of 2% – 12% in your articles. The higher the percentage, the better are your chances to be on top.

Since you think this is the best that you can do to increase the traffic in your site, you will keep in mind to maintain such a percentage. Hence, in writing your articles, you will aim to reach a certain percentage that you have set. This would not be a problem as long as it is well-written and organized. However it is more than likely that your articles will not make sense because of such great keyword density.

— Keyword Spamming

After packing your pages with keywords, you may not still be able to attain your page rank goals. Your articles may be keyword-packed but the search engines may just lump you up with the keyword spammers. This will not do at all.

The key here is to use other words related to your keyword. How will you do it then? Perhaps the dictionary will help you on this. Writing an article can be exhaustive, though, and it will be even more exhausting if you need to seek related words. There may be times when you run out of words and all you can do is to keep on repeating your keyword/s.

— The Wordtracker Solution

Should you want your site to be top ranking in search results try other means aside from maintaining a certain percentage in word density. Analyze your articles keyword content and variation using a wordtracker.

In case you don’t know, wordtracker is a tool that you can use to search for other words related to your keyword or keywords. Just click on the word universe and all the words related to your keyword or keywords will appear. Thus, you will not keep on repeating the same word or set of words over and over again until you finish your article.

Through the wordtracker, your article will appear very well-written and informative without much difficulty on your part. You can now write as many articles as you want, each packed with relevant keywords that would boost your site ranking, without sacrificing the quality of the information you are conveying to your target market or readers. In short, your pages are keyword-rich even while they makes sense to your target readers.

You may wonder how you can be on top of the search engine results pages if your keyword is not mentioned in your article a lot of times. The fact is, search engines can now group keywords and keyword variations. As long as you have a lot of your keyword variants in the article, that article will still be considered keyword dense and thus relevant. This can lead to increased page rank.

There is a bonus, too, to using word tracker. Once your target consumers reach your site, they will find your content and articles informative and easy to read since it is not filled with a recurring keyword or keyword phrases. Your readers will then find your articles worth reading because you don’t sound so redundant, and they may be induced to bookmark your page, refer you to others or better yet, buy your products or avail of your services.

    I think for SEO, it is better to link only to your homepage and not other pages.
