What's the best keyword density

  1. 1. SEO Copywriting Tips What’s the best keyword density for your site?
  2. 2. How to calculate “keyword density?” <ul><li>Count the number of keywords (keyphrases) on the page, and divide it by the total word count. </li></ul><ul><li>10 keyphrases/500 words = 2 percent keyword density </li></ul>
  3. 3. That’s great...but... You can party like it’s 1999, but don’t write SEO copy that way!
  4. 4. What you want to do instead... <ul><li>Focus on creating engaging content - not a density percentage. </li></ul><ul><li>Look for strategic places to insert your keyphrases - headlines, subheadlines, hyperlinks. </li></ul><ul><li>Read your copy out loud. If it sounds “keyphrase stuffed,” it probably is. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Thank you! <ul><li>Have a question? Email me at askheather @ and let me know! </li></ul>
