I am writing an article about dogs with low prey drive. In each of the breeds discussed, I discuss that types prey drive. I also discuss those dogs that have high prey drive, and what you can do to decrease prey drive.
This looks like keyword stuffing, even if it is not. How can I use this phrase over and over throughout the article and not appear like I am using it too much?
I use this resource https://onelook.com/thesaurus/?s=prey
'Urge to hunt/kill'
Ach... sorry brain stuck. I just tripped over one of my labs on the way out for our walk and now have a horrible hole just below my knee.
I would not worry too much about keyword stuffing until you have finished writing your article. I've had this problem before and it seems like the keyword is mentioned a lot. But when you check out the keyword density at the end there are good chances it's going to be below 2% (an example from my experience).
Use a keyword density checker tool to find out the density of your article: https://www.internetmarketingninjas.com … d-density/ (the best I could find).
What's a good keyword density? Check out the top 10 rankings and work out the average they use. This is what Google seems to love for that phrase.
Of course, use synonyms as much as you can too. Predatory behaviour for instance.
It is about 2000 words and I am not done yet, so I do not even think the number of times I use "prey drive" is going to be a problem. You are right, it is not something to worry about.
I've totally fallen out of checking keyword density - I can't believe I forgot all about it. Thanks for the resource! I've got work to do!
No problem. If you write naturally, there's almost always no need to worry about looking at the keyword density.
Even in this article, where the phrase prey drive seemed to jump out in every sentence, it was actually only 1.4%. I think this is not a problem in most cases if, as you mention, it is written naturally.
How about occasionally referring to prey drive as "that behavior," simply stating that dogs which exhibit that behavior will...etc. You could throw in the word " instinctually," as in, " these dogs will instinctually..."
I used "negative instinctual behaviors". I know those dog trainers out there looking for high prey drive dogs will want to kill me for that one.
They're now forming a traveling posse to head for the Brazilian jungle. Be on the lookout for people wearing "Cesar Sucks" t-shirts.
You know I heard on TV that the only way to get rid of those "negativers" is to hold your fingers together, poke them in the neck, and make a "sh-sh-shh" sound.
Oh wait, that was some guy from North America. (For us Mexico is North.)
How about "compelled," "require," "yearning," "inclined."
"Some dogs are not as compelled as others . . ."
"Some breeds require less drive . . ."
"There are breeds less inclined to . . . "
"This breed has a lower yearning for . . ."
Are you going to be discussing the herding instinct as part of the prey drive continuum? Here is a photo you can use, just credit In Motion Photography
No,I am mostly writing for those people who do not want those high prey drives. My photos are mostly of tranquil LGDs and lapdogs that would not rise up to chase even if done so.
Thanks for the photo though. I had some black and white Santa Ines lambs born this week. They would look fantastic in a photo with a BC. (Of course I am not sure if a BC would agree to that! Prey drive and all of that.)

What rules should I follow on keyword density for my hub?Is there a rule or guide when it comes to keyword density for a hub?
by kschang 9 years ago
With my own hub as an example... I won't show you the hub, but I'll just tell you it's my most popular hub. The hub was started in April of 2010 as sort of a joke, but steadily grew and grew, and grew. In September of 2010 it hit 200 views per day, no deliberate tuning was done. In December of 2010...
