    Just a quick question that hopefully has a simple answer...

    I'm optimizing for two longtail keywords. They're in the format [geographic area] [keyword]. I've got the density near 3% for both longtails, but at 5.85% for [keyword]. I obviously don't care about ranking for [keyword], just for the complete longtails. Am I correct in keeping things the way that they are, or is having the [keyword] density that high going to be a red flag? Thanks!

    According to big G, keyword density doesn't really matter anymore as long as the keywords are used natural. However, most marketers seem to have good results with tops 2%, but 1% is usually recommended. When it comes to longtails, I don't see why the kw density would be different.
