As it’s a Friday afternoon and we’re all winding down for the weekend, I thought it would be an appropriate time to reveal a lighthearted tale involving keyword density, penguins, and Sambuca that I recently admitted to the SEOptimise team – something terribly shameful…
A story of why keyword density is in fact not dead.
A few friends and I were playing the infamous ‘Happy Feet drinking game’ whereby each player is assigned a frequently mentioned word that whenever they hear whilst watching the film Happy Feet has to drink a shot. I was assigned the word ‘fish’ (which I wrongly assumed wouldn’t be mentioned very much).
It was at that point that my geek instincts kicked in and I went to Google to download a script of the movie. I subsequently inputted it into a keyword density checker to identify the most frequently used keywords in the film so that I could strategically assign the most frequently mentioned words to the friends who I felt deserved the most Sambuca!
So there you are, whoever said keyword density is useless? It’s only useless when optimising websites :-)
How to kick start your Friday with some Keyword Density Drinking Games:
1. Pick a film with characters renowned for frequently repeating specific words. My recommendations: Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Gordon Ramsay’s ‘The F Word’.
2. Download the subtitles for the film & input the text into a KW density checker.
3. Assign the most frequently mentioned words to those who deserve the most revenge.
4. Play! Enjoy.
