    Keyword Density of each word in phrase or the full phrase

    Hi Everyone

    This is my first post, so hello everyone

    My question is about keyword density and yeah yeah there is no hard and fast rule on this subject but:

    If I want to target a keyword for example "UK Holiday Cottages" and target say 2-3% density.

    When i do a density check am i looking for "UK Holiday Cottages" to be 2-3% or UK 2-3%, Holiday 2-3% and Cottages 2-3% ?

    At the moment i have 2-3% for each seperate word, but for the full 3 word phrase is 0.48%

    Thanks for any help

    Don't worry about keyword density, what you need is links that'll complement your page titles which in turn complement your text.

    There is no keyword density "PERIOD!"

    It was a gimmick thought up by some moron to represent the fact that he didn't know much about SEO but he needed something to convince others that he was a regular SEO Guru.

    The suggestion is this: you get points for keywords in your titles, alt="" links and content... you then don't get additional points by adding all those things you already scored point for - up and dividing that by all the other words that you didn't get any points for (in this specific measurement that is) and that have anything to do with the words you think you are measuring to discern some optimal percentage level.

    What a pile of crap!
