How keyword density been calculated?
Keyword density concerns with the ratio (%) of your keywords added within total number of indexed words within a webpage
Keyword density in % = Targeted Keywords / total number of indexed words * 100 (within a webpage)
Suppose, you have used keyword 10 times on your page and total number of words on your webpage is 200. So in this case 10 divided by 200 = .05
Keyword density is referred as percentage. So we need to multiply .05 by 100 to get percentage figure
Calculation would look like this:
.05 x 100 = 5%
So your page has a keyword density of 5%.
By this you can optimize your web page effectively "matching keyword density, meeting SE algorithm rule" which brings top results on the search engines.
