    How would having my own electrical dictionary on my website affect the notion of keyword stuffing? Is it exempt? or will it go crazy dense? Do I try and internally link the dictionary definitions with the words being used internally in the site too?

    Keyword stuffing is when you force the same keyword into one page to raise your keyword density. The issue with what you stated above is that you would inundate your users with anchor text in every sentence. To quote Maddox on the subject:
    There are multiple routes you can take in this situation:

    1. Link each electrical term to a dictionary definition on another website, but open it in a new tab.
    2. Start a second website dedicated to defining each electrical definition and link to each definition from that site to your new site.
    3. Give a basic definition (if possible) on each term in the same article.
    4. Define each term at the bottom of each article.
    5. Do what you were initially going to do.

    I believe I found another way to add to my site. Every trades pages has a throw away journeyman electrician/plumber/hvac etc... and helper blurb. My idea is to fully flesh it out in great detail, even if I can never hire anyone and use specific trade terms like NATE certified or x manafacturer's product certified as what we would be always looking for. I am guessing this is a way to flesh everything out, look way bigger than what we are, and drop so many names that I will need a broom and a dustpan to clean up the mess.

    No, that would not be keyword stuffing, its different, there are several dictionary and thesaurus sites ranking well.

    Plenty of websites have glossaries or industry dictionaries. I can't see how this would be an issue.

    No that's not keyword stuffing. In fact some marketers have used a comprehensive glossary of terms as killer blog posts that rank high and bring quality traffic to their site.
