    Understanding Keyword Density


    Do you know why your competitor always stands TOP and some goes DOWN to END?

    Competitor who stands top all-time understands keyword density, high competitive keyword position can be attained only through proper keyword density and it can be approximately 2 - 8%.

    Some list fast and we think how they do, they stuff keywords and dont meet keyword density rule, don’t mind them as a long term competitor, they can be dropped anytime, i have noticed many.

    Try out this tool go rank which helps you to optimize websites with proper keyword density ratio

    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.

    Create Search Engine Friendly URLs using .htaccess


    In this post, we will see how to use .htaccess to create search engine friendly URLs. Using .htaccess, mapping dynamic pages to static address is easy and this helps search engines to index the pages fast, effective and strong.

    Initially, create a file .htaccess in your favorite editor, use the rewrite rule as below to map dynamic id passing url's to static version. Use the code and create your dynamic pages for search engines spiders

    **************************************************************
    RewriteEngine on

    ## Rewrite Rules ##

    RewriteRule ^category/([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)/([a-z_]*)$ category.php?id=$1&page_id=$2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^category/([^/]*)/([a-z_]*)/([^/]*)$ category.php?r_name=$2&id1=$1


    ***************************************************************

    For eg: Originally the page URL looks like subcategory.php?id=5&page_id=1

    Using the above .htaccess code, you can create the URL as

    category/5/1/product_name

    Here,

    RewriteRule ^category/([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)/([a-z_]*)$

    ^ - Refer to start
    Category - creates a folder as mentioned name
    / - Used for virtual partition
    [0-9] - Writes single number as folder name
    [0-9]* - Writes n numbers as folder name
    [a-z_] - Writes single letters as folder name
    [a-z_]* - Writes letters as folder name
    $ - Refer to end


    Additional information:

    Your id passing pages might have indexed through some referral and so, you can use the below code to avoid error pages, create a 404pagenotfound.php and add your a message to your visitors to navigate to home page for information’s

    *****************************************************************

    ## Trace Errors
