    How does Google look at a phrase such as "Earn Money"?

    Do they gather every single time that key phrase has been used throughout your entire website, or page by page?

    If they gather the total throughout your whole website, what can kind of tool can I use to find that number or do I have to do it manually?

    Forget about density, start making quality content, and link to it in variety of links not just silly placing one KW everywhere.

    You might try SeoQuake toolbar for firefox, and click on "Density".

    Mate, I agree with grim111.
    But just to satisfy your question, it's checked on a per page or post basis.
    If you're really concerned about keyword density, don't go beyond 1% of the total word count of your HIGH QUALITY content. Take note of the descriptive word I used - HIGH QUALITY content - and not just so-so content.

    Hello,

    With recent Google updates it's more sought after to diversify your keywords as long as they fit in with the sentences properly and are relevant to whatever topic you are talking about. Google loves high quality unique content, and lots of it! Just consistently update your website with quality content related to your Niche and you will see an increase in organic rankings naturally.

    Best Regards,

    Sacred Marketing

    To be successful in google keep your keyword density (all the time used in a single page) under 2%.

    It's not so hard to detect keyword stuffing if you think about it. Most people still didn't change their ways and they "spam their pages" with the keyword in the meta tags, headline, subhead, alt tag, body etc. These pages will get the boot.

    On the other hand, you have pages where they gently plant several keywords and as much as Matt would like to solve this issue, they couldn't do it so far. But page with real content will have the keywords in it, you don't need to stress about it too much. Make sure your content is legit, on page is done right, internal links share the love with other pages and you have all the time in the world to worry about the important thing - traffic. Be it SEO or other methods. If it's SEO, you need links, links, and some more links.

    When you have links, your PR is bigger. Now the bot will visit you more often and stay longer at your site. The result? More pages indexed and noticed, more time to analyze your page's content and the bot will travel to other sites. Get some more links and it will understand what the general theme of the site is, the relation between pages and how popular a certain page is. Now, you get traffic.

    Don't worry about density, just write your content naturally around the keyword you wanna target.

    It's all about se*... ahem.. Links ;)
