One of the thumb rule of on page optimization is Keyword density. By maintaining right %age of K.D, you will be able to target your post for particular Keyword. In this post, I will talk about one such Keyword density checker WordPress plugin, which will help you to find out which Keywords in the post has maximum density.
Some time back one of ShoutMeLoud guest author shared about SEO scribe WordPress plugin which is a premium plugin and helps you to SEO optimize your blog post. No doubt that plugin is really useful for any blogger to optimize their single post for search engine.
But every budding blogger can’t afford a premium WordPress plugin and here I’m sharing an alternative to SEO scribe plugin which is not as feature rich as SEO scribe, but still very useful for any bloggers to find the right keyword for their blog post.
Some time back Google announced that they don’t care about meta keyword tags but from my experience, they still helps you a lot to rank for right keyword. More over instead of small (single word) keyword it’s easier to target long tail keyword and rank for it.
I’m talking about WordPress plugin known as SEO-Tool – Keyword Density Checker which shows the most used keyword in a blog post and you can pick the targeted keyword. It shows the keyword/phrase and number of time that keyword is being used in your post. If you are trying to optimize your post for certain keyword, you might like to edit your post and maintain the right density for SEO. I usually prefer to keep it around 1-1.5%. Though, you might like to check the calculation based on your target Keyword: Short tail or long tail. Also, when you target a Keyword try to use LSI keywords, which will be very helpful to rank better.
While using this plugin, One thing which you should keep in mind that don’t try to pick all suggested keywords, instead use 3-4 strong keyword or phrase. You can also use Google instant search feature to check if that long tail term is part of suggested search term or not.
This plugin comes with an option page from where you can configure settings, more or less, you just need to install and activate this plugin.
