What Is An Ideal Keyword Density?

What is the ideal keyword density for your blog? This is a question that most Web Master’s seem to chase when they are creating content for their blog. Some people feel that there is no such thing as an ideal keyword density, and instead focus on creating quality content to help them rank for their keywords.

However, there is such a thing as a a right mix to get you to that ideal keyword density. This post will try to find what the right mix is and those findings will be documented, along with other keyword tests that have been done, as part of another blog case study that is being written.

Ideal Keyword Density

This post will focus on an ideal keyword density that is too much. This post will start off using a density that is meant to be just the right mix.  From there, we will start to overuse the keyword and see what the impact on the ranking is. Let’s take a look at how this is going to be structured:

Initial Post

The keyword density will be between 1% and 1.5%. This will be considered our baseline.

Subsequent Updates

The second and subsequent iterations of the post will continue to add the keyword, and increase the percentage by a minimum of 1 percent for each time the post is published.

Expected Results

What I expect to see as part of this little ideal keyword density test, is to see they ranking factor for this keyword – ideal keyword density -, will continue to decline as I add more and more keywords to the mix.

This would seem to go along with what most experts agree to be the ideal keyword density for a blog post. Most of these experts seem to state the density should be between 1 and 2 percent, although I have seen other posts that say you can be as high as 5 percent. While I’ve never tried to go quite that high with my density, I’ll be interested to see what the results of this test show when I start to go higher then 3%.

That’s part of the reason I’m adding content to this p0st, as I want the search engines to see it as a valid post with good content.

You can read about the findings in a month or so when they are published. I’ll be sure to update this content with a link to that case study once I have published that.
