    Awesome guide, yet another one from phpbuilt; much appreciated. What I found most interesting (and new) in this updated version is how to fight negative SEO by using de-optimization techniques.

    One question: on your guide you mention your recommended keyword densities as follows:

    One-word = 0.8 to 1.1%
    Two-word = 0.7 to 1%
    Three-word = 0.5 to 0.7%

    These numbers are ONLY for the body area right? And these recommended figures should be used in conjunction with our keyword being in the title, H1 and URL right? That's how I got it.

    An example for the keyword "best widgets":

    Title: Looking for the best widgets? You have come to the right place!
    H1 Tag: Best widgets on the market reviewed

    URL: mywebsite.com/best-widgets
    Keyword density on the article (whole body area actually not just the article, especially if using WP and its injected shit): 0.8% (between 0.7 and 1 for two word keywords as recommended above)

    Am I going to get over-optimization penalty for the above example? Assuming no links (either external or internal) have been built so far. Sorry for the long post, but I just want to help everybody else as well get it RIGHT before applying it on their sites.

    Hey, thanks for asking. I don't arrange sales of services through blackhatworld (or if I did, I'd submit a sales thread through BHW). If you have general questions, you can ask them here and I'll answer for free.

    Not only for the body, this includes all links on the page (even menus) and H1 tags. If it is text on the page, it counts towards those density levels.

    Yes, these low percentages are assuming that the template is wordpress, and they're sticking you with a template that takes the title, and makes it into an H1 tag, and auto-recommends a slug with the keywords in it. If you have full control over the template and there isn't an H1 tag being forced upon you, you could choose an LSI H1 tag and then you're freed up to bump the keyword in your body upwards of 1.5% to 1.7% perhaps (because regular keyword use in body is far less optimizing than an H1 tag).


    Regarding a "best-widgets" slug, that's incredibly optimizing, a longer slug, or one with LSI terms might be preferred. The problem is you can't change your slug at a later date (otherwise you're braking incoming links, leaving a 401 or a redirect behind, etc.) so make your slug right from the beginning.

    Otherwise it looks just fine.
