    I have a question on keyword density for all you SEO gurus

    If I have a phrase lets say something like "Spain Holiday Lets" and the within my article the phrase does not get over done (saturated), but the keywords "spain holiday" or the keyword spain in mentioned many times, does google still see the article as spam, although the phrase I want to rank for is not saturated.

    no it will not freeufcdotinfo. it will not spam it. just make sure that it is not used unnecessarily. also the density if the keyowrd in the artocle should be within the range of 3 to 5%.

    What my point is a keyword used allot such spain may exceed the 5% and in some cases 2 keyword together may exceed this.

    If I'm not mistaken, it is recommended that the entire "keyword phrase" must be no more than 3-5% in density. If someone else knows for sure, they can clarify.

    as long as your content makes sense and is not giberish you should be fine. I use a lot of keywords in my content and I repeat them many times over but my sentences are logical. Havent had a problem so far.
