Formula of keyword density in SEO

An integral part of any campaign for search engine optimization (SEO) is the research and choose keywords for your website. This is basically the words or terms that you are trying to defend in the search engine. Do you sell PEZ dispensers? Then you may want to use "fish", the "providers", "candy flavored" or the most popular items, such as "Star Wars PEZ. Once you do choose these keywords, you need to enter keywords in the content and tags of your website is considered relevant for search engines when ranking your site. This includes the copy on your website, and all page titles, heading tags and links. It is not an easy process, but necessary for SEO.

When you insert your keywords throughout the content of the on-site, it is vital to understand the density at which the keywords are optimized on a page. The "keyword density" is referring specifically to how often a keyword is used in your copy of the in-page. Search engines compute the percentage of keyword density, and found the more often a search term in content, most will think that your page is relevant and should be ranked higher. However, there is a fine line between having an optimum density of the keyword and over-stuffing your content with keywords and terms.
Please note: Just because you have the right amount of keyword density in your SEO campaign, it means that the higher you will automatically align. The new Google algorithm favors really related terms to search only the keyword density. Focus also on the quality of its content, which only focus on your keyword density. If you exceed the optimal density of the keyword, you can face a penalty of over-optimization.
There's percentage of "perfect" in the keyword density in SEO, but strives to keep our Volacci density at or below 5 percent. The percentage of a page is relative to its length happy, so it is recommended that you know the formula for calculating each page. The formula for the keyword density is quite simple.
  1. Count how many words you have on your page.
  2. Count how many times you have used your keyword
  3. Apply this formula

    Keyword density = ([key word count]) * 100 / (total word count]
For example, let's say you have a 500 word article about PEZ dispensers, and you are optimizing for "FISH"
  • - Total Word Count: 500
  • - Applications of FISH keyword: 12

    Density of "fish" = (12 * 100) / 500
    The keyword density for "FISH" on page is 2.4%
SEO campaigns, have keyword optimization in content on-page is very important to be relevant to the search engines. However, if you focus too much on keyword density, you can potentially lose focus on other important elements in the dynamic approach to optimizing your site. Use the formula for keyword density to ensure that you are applying relevant applications of your keywords in quality content and links so that you are getting the most out of your research. If you abuse your keywords, Google will get you gods, so the stuffers are not saved.
