Free Keyword Density Analysis Checker

Have you ever wondered what makes content from your competitors rank higher than content you created?

It may have something to do with your website’s keyword density.

What Is Keyword Density?

The term ‘keyword density’ was coined by the SEO community as a way of describing how many times a certain keyword or phrase appears within a block of text on a webpage.

Although it used to be acceptable to mention your webpage’s target keyword as many times as possible (known as ‘keyword stuffing’) to rank higher in search results, that is no longer the case. Now, it’s a big no-no.

In fact, numerous Google updates, including “Panda”, have smashed such practices into oblivion. Search engines are now more sophisticated and are better able to identify and punish users who attempt to game their algorithms.

As a result, more users are now focusing on creating higher quality, longer form pieces of content. This allows writers to naturally include a greater number of relevant keywords, as well as Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) keywords.

What are LSI Keywords?

LSI keywords are words or phrases that closely relate to your main target keywords. For instance, if you were to target a term such as ‘Coffee’ within your content, the LSI keywords would be terms such as ‘mugs’ ‘milk’ and ‘sugar’.

You’ll find that LSI keywords will occur naturally within your content if you concentrate on writing in-depth information about your content topic. In fact, you’ll find it’s rather difficult to write about topics like coffee without mentioning milk or sugar!

As the saying goes, 'content is king'. Not only from a user’s perspective, but also in the eyes of the search engines. As mentioned earlier, long form content is becoming more and more important as Google continues to see less value in low quality, thin content pages.  Our free online keyword density checker can help.

Our free keyword density checker enables you to assess the keyword usage of an existing page on any website.

To begin, just enter a URL.

The tool will give you insights into the total number of keywords found on the selected page, a list of the most commonly-used words on the page, and the density of those keywords in percentage format.

These results can be used as a means of comparing your content to that of a competitor. They can also help you determine whether the keywords you’re targeting are among the highest used words on your page, or whether you need to give them a bigger spotlight.
