Keyword density is also an important factor to be focused on while analyzing a website. Keywords or key phrases are normally used in the content of a website to enable search engine in recognizing them in response to any search on some particular topic. Keyword density means the percentage number of times the keywords are used in the content of the website as compared to its whole content.
For instance your website or web page has 100 words in all in its content including captions, headings and other texts. If the keyword is used three times in this content then its keyword density will be calculated as number times of keyword use multiplied by 100 and divided by total number of words in the content. In this case it will be 3%.
Keyword density is calculated on the basis of the content displayed on the webpage of the website. Usually people use reasonable keyword density for its effective SEO as some search engines avoid entertaining the websites with high keyword density. Thus keyword density also plays an important role in analyzing the performance of a website.
Thus if you are developing a new website or buying a website from a web designer for your business then it is necessary to analyze its performance capabilities so that you may know it completely. Little knowledge about your website will be merely wastage of money.
