Keyword Density and Your Pages
I sometimes get copy from my customers to put on their sites that sounds like it is just stuffed full of keywords that they are hoping that search engines will find them for. Unfortunately most of the time it sounds just like that and makes little of no sense to the human visitor. I tell them that the search engines will know that too and will probably penalize you for it. Even if they don’t what good does it do to have a zillion visitors if they can’t read and understand what you are trying to tell them?
Karon Thackston has written an article titled “Stop the Slaughter of Innocent Copy!” on the sitepronews site. She talks about how to add keywords to your copy without disrupting the flow of what you want to say and I think it’s well worth the read.
