I was a bit worried about the Keyword Density (which is the percentage of times a keyword or keyword phrase appears on a web page compared to the total number of words on the page) for some of the previous articles. I asked myself ‘Have I over-optimized the posts?’. Of course, I haven’t done any Keyword Stuffing (practice of loading a webpage with keywords to manipulate search engines) but I did add keywords to meta-keywords and meta-description. But I believe that I used keywords appropriately and in context.
Google has already taken steps to penalize overly SEO’ed websites. So let’s be careful when writing an article. But how? Just keep your Keyword Density at around 3%. I did some research on keyword stuffing and density and I find that 2–3% is the ideal SEO Keyword Density percentage. But according to Submit Edge, one of the top Search Engine Optimization company, it should be between 1–2%. That too for a single word keyword. I find it very difficult to keep the density of single word keywords in that range. So I guess 2–3% is ideal.
So I Googled to find the Best Keyword Density Tools/Checker/Analyzer. But it returned a lot of results and there were tons of paid and Free Keyword Density Tools. I tried few of them and want to to list only the best among them which are free.
