    Become An Instant SEO Forum Expert! - Since search engines...


    (Page 4 of 8 )

    Since search engines could not conceivably check every page manually (As a rough estimate, Google indexes 8.1 billion pages - and pages are added daily), and they couldn't tolerate spam in their search results, search engines devalued keyword density as a ranking tool. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if keyword density did NOT affect your rankings - in fact, keyword positioning (placing the keywords in title tags and header tags) as well as thematic keyword relevance (a fancy term that refers to how related your core keywords are to your website's main theme or niche) is far more important in terms of on-page optimization. And that, of course, pales in comparison to how important off-page optimization, or link building, is.

    So, if possible, ignore the bounds of keyword density and focus on the following:

    * Good, useful, quality content
    * Keyword positioning
    * Keyword relevance

    And once you're done with the basics, move on to the next page (or start building links).
