Written by Glenn Murray

Continued from page 1

A recent article by respected SEO and Blog expert, Wayne Hurlbert, (see Keyword Density: SEO Considerations) suggests that Google sees pages with a keyword density of greater than 2% as spam. It was this article which prompted me to analyze repparttar keyword density of my copywriting website.


The Website: This case study analyzes repparttar 136813 website for my advertising copywriting and SEO copywriting business, Divine Write – For my primary keyword, my site is now on page 1 of (out of approximately 900,000 search results).

Number of pages on site: Atrepparttar 136814 time of writing, my website contained a total of 53 pages.

Primary keyword phrase: “copywriter”

Average keyword density: Usingrepparttar 136815 simple measure of keyword density discussed above, repparttar 136816 average keyword density of my copywriting website is 1.9%. Usingrepparttar 136817 complex measure it’s 4.9%.

Keyword density range: Usingrepparttar 136818 simple measure, my density ranged from 0.4% to 7.6%. Using repparttar 136819 complex measure it ranged from 1.6% to 17.5%

Some comments onrepparttar 136820 keyword density figures

  • The figures and corresponding ranking detailed in this case study may not be directly relevant to every site. There’s a lot I don’t know aboutrepparttar 136821 algorithms and there are bound to be other factors at play which I don’t know about.
  • With regard to Wayne Hurlbert’s article, it would seem that he is referring to keyword density as calculated usingrepparttar 136822 simple method discussed above.
  • The range figures are noteworthy because they suggest that you don’t need to be paranoid about having some pages with a very high density and some with a very low density.


A simple keyword density of 1.9% can be enough for a first page ranking in (assuming you have enough quality backlinks – see SEO for CEOs and How to Top Google by Writing Articles for more information).
