Working out the keyword density of your website pages.
For the search engines to find your pages, you’ll need the right keywords on them, but how many?
If you’ve been working through the 8 Days so far, you should have learnt about the importance of keyword phrases, how to research them and something on getting the right ones into the text.
How many keywords phrases have your weaved into the webpage text?
So having got this far, and before we go much further, we need to do a bit of a check to see just how many keywords you’ve weaved into the text, whether you’ve got the right focus and most importantly whether you have too high a density or too low.
So how do you go about doing this? Well obviously you can spend a bit of time reading through the page content in some detail, noting where the keywords are and gaining a reasonable idea of what the density is. The only problem with this approach is it take a lot of time, and unless you’re very patient, tends not to be very accurate.
An highlighter tool can help with this.
To help you get a better idea of where the keywords are in the page, it can be helpful to use highlighter tool. This offers a simple visual thumb-in-the-air answer to what density the keywords are. To get a much more accurate picture and learn the percentage keyword density, you’ll need to use a web page density tool, but more on that later.
Here’s an example.
As every I’m going to go through an example, as this is often the best way to learn. I’ll pick a page on ReallySimpleSEO.com, that’s ranking well for a specific phrase, highlight the keywords in it and then use a density tool to see how dense the keywords are on the page to achieve the ranking.
