Are your keywords dense – Or are you?

Today I was listening to some teleseminars delivered by my friends Patsi Krakoff & Denise Wakeman of The Blog Squad [1].  They were talking about optimization of blogs. I have to admit that I didn’t understand the whole concept behind key word density and how it related to optimization. I just didn’t get how important it is for both a blog and a website. That is, until I was listening to them.

So I hopped over to Wikipedia and read the following about Key Word Density [2] & Optimization [3]

"Keyword density is the percentage of words on a web page that match a specified set of keywords. In the context of search engine optimization [3]
keyword density can be used as a factor in determining whether a web
page is relevant to a specified keyword or keyword phrase. Due to the
ease of managing keyword density, search engines [4] usually implement other measures of relevancy to prevent unscrupulous webmasters [5] from creating search spam [6] through practices such as keyword stuffing [7].

Okay, so density is just part of the whole equation.  Then, somehow I stumbled across a FREE tool to see how "dense" keywords are on a blog or website. http://www.keyworddensity.com [8]

Test your own blog or website.  Are your keywords dense enough to attract search engine spiders?

What other tools do you know about to increase your visibility?
