How often should you repeat your keywords?

Keyword density. That’s a term that refers to how many times you use a certain keyword phrase on a web page as a percentage of the total number of words on that page.

Well, guess what? That’s nonsense. (And don’t just take it from me, listen to Google. See Matt Cutt’s webmaster video below.)

There is NO magic number when it comes to keyword density in SEO.

I’m now a Tutor at Search Engine College

I was recently asked to become a part-time online Tutor at the well established Search Engine College. I have now started in that role and am really enjoying it!

I currently tutor about half a day per week, mostly grading student assignments, which I do on top of my regular work writing and editing copy and doing SEO and websites for clients.

Search Engine College is a respected international company that offers short self-study and certification courses in Search Engine Optimisation and related disciplines.
