Is there a good way to calculate keyword density on WORD? Or do I just need to estimate based on every 100 words?
Now I think this is worth a hub from mywebs.... why dont you ask her the question and get her to write a hub for you?
What makes you think I'm a her? lol
Sorry but I'm a man. Makes me wonder what I've done to give you the impression I'm a chick? Hmmmm
Ok I do admit panties do feel awfully nice at times, just kidding.
Give me a minute and I'll post some keyword density tools that will check a hub or web page automatically for you.
Oh well... in that case I will send you some panties if you really like them!
Maybe I get that impression because you are in touch with your feminine side? hehehe Who is your feminine side anyway? lol
Well, you can never tell around here, can you? Look at Poppa! I wonder how many lude remarks he gets?!
I mean would a pinky red sky be considered male or female? Whatever, I accept you as you are!
AWESOME. Thanks. I agree, a hub on the topic would be nice, too.
Someone posted this one earlier today in the forums and I like it the best as it gives other useful information too:

The rest all do basically the same thing, and I had no trouble getting any to work on one of my hubs. Sadly though each one came up with a different keyword count.

I got into a long forum discussion yesterday with another hubber about keywords and such. I really don't worry about keyword density much.
My belief is that if your really focused on "XYZ" then you will naturally use that keyword phrase enough naturally to rank well for it if you also have it in your Title, and URL along with proper back-linking work.
If anything I would use one of the keyword density tools to make sure I'm not using a keyword too many times so it doesn't appear spammy, which is a very bad thing.
Different people focus on different aspects of SEO and no one really knows exactly whats in Google's secret sauce, besides a select few insiders.
I read that discussion too! I tried article underground today. I found that a couple of the things it didn't like are things that are out of my control in hubs (I think)
I've been using a mix of keyword searching and natural writing.
Yes many of the things it flags like meta-keywords, robots, author, too many URL's we don't have no control over. none of those are important though.
Google has ignored Meta-Keywords for years due to webmaster abuse. Many other search engines also ignore it, and the ones that do use it are not worth worrying about as they are so small to not matter much imo.
I don't calculate keyword density. I write my articles for humans, not search engines. And despite that I still get search engine traffic.
The strangest thing I've seen is the keyword stuffing of the same phrase three or more times into the opening sentence. That there is the mark of an rank amateur and an idiot.
Maybe some people just haven't quite 'got it' yet. We cant all be as clever as you and you are clever Glen!
Same here darkside, keyword density used to be work 10 years ago when you wrote a page for each search engine, thankfully these days are gone. The page has to be self descriptive but that’s going to come about if you write naturally anyway.
IMO onpage factors, including keyword density, play little in how a page ranks. I would rather use content to better encourage sales, leads, opt-ins or whatever the page is attempting to achieve and use links to drive rankings.
I read somewhere that if you have over 5% or more of any one keyword the search engines will ignore you for keyword stuffing, so it really doesn't pay to overdo.
I don't know if 5% is a correct number, but too many of a keyword is defiantly very bad and will get your page buried on banned from search engines. What constitutes "too many" is open to interpretation.
Hidden text, white text on white background, hiding text off page, and showing GoogleBot different content than normal users see will all get you banned as well.
It is all a mystery and a lottery really. Hey ho... whatever! This SEO can drive you nuts! lol
