Your Website and Keyword Density Analysis
If you have an online business, it is important that search engines can find you website and point visitors to it. A potential visitor may well visit your website by typing in a word or set of words into the search engine – and these words are called keywords.
For example when someone searches for “keyword density analysis” (as you may have to get to this page) they want to find information that is related to these words – not just a set of random websites.
When writing a page for your website, you have to ensure that you have a sufficient numbers of keywords for a search engine to be able to find you and this is where your keyword density analysis comes into play. It is a way of analysing the number of times a selected keyword or phrase appears on your web page.
But beware, keywords should not be over used, but should be just sufficient enough to appear at important places. If you repeat your keywords with every other word on every line, then your site will probably be rejected as an artificial site or spam site.
You can check the relevance of your keywords a free keyword density tool like Google Keyword Tools and WordTracker. A lot of the hard work can be done for you automatically too, with WordPress plug-ins such as SEOPressor (but more on that later).
How do you work out your keyword density analysis?
Keyword density analysis is the percentage of the total word content on a given web page.
Suppose you have 100 words on your online business webpage, and you use a certain keyword for 5 times in the content. The keyword density on that page is calculated by simply dividing the total number of keywords, by the total number of words that appear on your web page. So here it is 5 divided by 100 = .0.05. Because keyword density is a percentage of the total word count on the page, multiply the above by 100, that is 0.05 x 100 = 5%
The accepted standard for a keyword density is between 2% and 5%, to get recognised by the search engines.
Search engines can also detect artificial keyword stuffing or spamdexing. This is the deliberate manipulation of search engine indexes such as repeating unrelated key phrases or words.
Remember, that this rule applies to every page on your site. It also applies to not just to one keyword but also a set of keywords that relates to a different product or service.
Your keyword density analysis can also be effected by LSI ( Latent Semantic Indexing) keyword usage. Basically, this means using keywords that are related or have similar meaning to your main keywords.
How to check keyword density on your website pages
A simple way to check keyword density analysis is to first type your text into a word-processing software program like Word or Word Perfect.
Once you have written the text, highlight all text and select ‘Word Count’ in the Tools menu and make a note of the total number of words on the page.
Then, go to the ‘Edit’ menu and select the ‘Find’ function. Go to the ‘Replace’ tab and type in the keyword you want to find. ‘Replace All’ that word with the same word, so you do not change the text.
When you complete the ‘Replace All’ function, the system will provide a count of the words you replaced. That gives the number of times you have used the keyword in that page. Using the total word count for the page and the total number of keywords you can now calculate the keyword density by using the formula given above.
