    When I check the keyword density of my article with a KW density tool, I notice it doesn't count text link words. Are they not counted?

    Depends on the tool. But yes, I'm pretty sure they count towards the keyword density of your page.

    Id your worried about keyword density to the degree where you think it matter if anchors are included or not-then your way off track go back to the start and think again.

    Density does not play that big a part any more, authority and relevance are more important.
