    'Learn more' affects keyword density

    Hello, I am doing on-page optimization, I'm using a WP template that contains several links with the words "Learn more". These are links to product pages or other landing pages. But the words "learn more" seem to have the highest two-word frequency on my page.

    I am wondering if they could have a negative impact in terms of SEO. Or if it's better if I use some keywords instead. Do I run a risk of an over optimization penalty if I remove the 'learn more' for something more optimized? like my targeted keywords?

    Keyword density is a myth.

    You get points for adding keywords to the title element or to the body text or to the links to the page.

    You don't get more points by adding all those points together that you previous got then dividing that by all the points you didn't get for non-keyword reference and coming up with some magical number that is completely meaningless..

    Keyword Density is code for dumbass!

    The default WP 'Learn more' is not going to hurt your website.
