    How to phrase your words for a search is very important. I find that I can rephrase questions and get results when my first attempt fails. If you get stuck finding answers in a search engine,just keep trying to sustitute words that are close to the original question,sooner or later you do figure it out.

    Keyword density is not AS important. I would try to write naturally first, before you worry about density. Remember, everything that is HTML counts towards density, footers, menus, side bar etc.

    You can wind-up over optimizing. I would write naturally, use at least an H1 tag and then work on backlinks. Ever check a cached version of a site a never find the keywords even on the page?

    You would see this “These terms only appear in links pointing to this page:”

    So, keywords are important but I wouldn’t worry about density. Use backlinks to help boost you up. If density was the only factor, then everyone would rank well, once they guessed the right percentage that is.
