About Keyword Density Checker

For today’s search engines keyword density is just a very small factor when it comes to ranking pages for a specific keyword. It is however important to use your focus keyword(s) inside all the important on-page elements: Title tag, Meta description, H1, body, alt tag and internal links to make sure search engines understand your content. In addition to the on-page elements, off-page factors like: backlinks and anchor text still play a mayor role for search engines when indexing and ranking your webpages.

These results can be used as a means of comparing your content to that of a competitor. They can also help you determine whether the keywords you’re targeting are among the highest used words on your webpage, or whether you need to give them a bigger spotlight.

What Is Keyword Density?

The term ‘keyword density’ was coined by the SEO community as a way of describing how many times a certain keyword or phrase appears within a block of text on a webpage.

Although it used to be acceptable to mention your webpage’s target keyword as many times as possible (known as ‘keyword stuffing’) to rank higher in search results, that is no longer the case. Now, it’s a big no-no.
