    Hello,

    I have been told that my website looks a bit 'keyword spammy'. My keyword density is high and I suspect that is why my rankings have drop (Google algo updates).

    Is there a tool I can use to check my keyword density and report back if it is high?

    Also, I have a bunch of spammy links (I did a FIVERR gig a couple of years ago and have now been penalized by Google).

    It was advised that we ditch this .com domain and move things over to our .co.uk domain and thus start with a clean slate and re-built properly all while adjusting the onsite text. Is this a sound way forward? I don't want to spend months beating a dead horse (the .com) when in reality, I could be working on a fresh site (the .co.uk).

    What are your thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Dave

    If it were me I wouldn't bother trying to undo the bad work on that one domain - I'd start over with the new domain and fix the issues straight away ... work to reduce the density and forget using crappy fiverr gigs and be more protective of it.

    My thinking is purely based on the fact that penalties and corrective action takes time + money

    Agreed Danny......

    How can I check KW density to ensure I don't fall afoul? On a side note.....I have learned my lessons! No more Fiverr Gigs, etc....

    you know you should sign up for one of those 90 day Moz Account trials and run those tools they offer for free on your site - if its a WP Site there are Plugins you can add that will give you OnPage Scores and Suggestions

    so those are the couple of routes I would look at - to make things go faster for you.

    You can paste your article in wordcounter .net and you can see the keyword density. I just write all of my articles naturally. I include keywords where they would naturally fit.
