Our online density checking software analyzes results in 3 different angles. It will display one, Two and Three words density. Frequency of using one same word must not exceed from 3% of your total content and In case of long tail search phrases you must keep it between 1-2%.
Now most common question comes in mind; what will happen if I exceed it's limits. Excessive use of same words or phrase may are not recommended by search engines and your website may penalize by google or bing under the section of keyword stuffing. So never and ever try to over-optimize your website content.
In the early 90s, most of the webmaster used this trick to rank their website in the search engines in no time. But with the passage of time search engines restricted their policies to improve search results. In its Panda update, Google marked all those websites spam, those were using the same keyword multiple times. Using a keyword 4-5 times is natural. Most of the SEO experts recommend having keyword density lower than 3%. More than that percentage is over optimization.
The density of any keyword is calculated with the following formula (NKr/Tkn)x100, where Nkr is how many times a keyword is used and Tkn is total words in your article or text. If you are using keyword “Plagiarism Checker”, it will be considered as one keyword, not 2 words and formula will be (1/Tkn)x100.
If Density is less than 3 percent then it’s nothing to worry about, but if it exceeds this limit then it will be considered as keyword stuffing. First Trick is to use synonyms for your keyword, for example, you can replace “plagiarism checker” with “plagiarism detector”, “plagiarism software” or “copy paste checker”. For this purpose you can use PPS article rewriter, it will automatically search for synonyms against the content. The second Trick, Increase text length; it will automatically lower this percentage.
