    Keyword density - header&footer


    Hi

    I have a doubt about keyword density, does the header and footer of a webpage have any effect on keyword density of that particular page in the eyes of google crawler?

    A loaded question.

    Since Google does not use keyword density as a ranking preamp the answer is no... on that point... but the header and footer of a webpage is part of the page where elements are found that Google does use in its algorithm.

    The "eyes of google" are the same as the eyes of the people you want to stay on your site. They won't be convinced to stay unless you place the words that will persuade them in the header and top half of the page. Keyword stuff all you want to, but if your word choices make no sense to humans, its a total waste of time. Google doesn't want to rank useless pages.

    Google also consider the keywords in header and footer of the page in the keyword density..
    So use wisely within the keyword density limit.
