    Im not sure about Word Press but i do know that alot of times on a lot of blog sites it does. Like earlier i was on an auto blog looking for stuff about BMWs and I was directed to the site on Bing with BMW highlighted and all. First i thought it was cloaked or hidden text and somebody was black hatting up then I poped up the code inspector and then pulled up find and found the only BMW stuff in a comment way down below the fold. The keywords were there just way down.

    Yes, keyword density is generally calculated across all the text in the page.

    However keyword density isn't really something that is worth worrying about. Agonizing over keyword density is dumb whitehat shit. As long as your page is clearly about $keyword, worry about getting more backlinks. Getting real comments at all is probably a good sign because it means someone is reading your blog.

    I do have to say that having commentluv really makes you a target for spammers though.

    Autumn, one thing though, keyword density does matter if you overdo it. :)
