Keyword Stuffing is one of the easiest “Black Hat SEO Practice” to fix

But first what is it:

What is Keyword Stuffing?

Google defines Keyword Stuffing as:

the practice of loading a webpage with keywords or numbers in an attempt to manipulate a site’s ranking in Google search results. Often these keywords appear in a list or group, or out of context (not as natural prose).

Essentially it is repeating the same words over and over again in attempt to encourage search engines to rank your website higher in the search results.

Here’s an example:

Now that you know what keyword stuffing is here’s how to fix it:

How to Fix Keyword Stuffing

1.Check to see if your content has keyword stuffing:

You can use a keyword density tool to see how often a keyword is repeated.

Just put in your website url:

Press enter and then scroll down to your “keyword density report”

Here’s an example:

Godaddy or Bluehost are worth considering.

Again make sure you keep your credentials to yourself and just give your SEO Company access to your WordPress.

Now once you are logged into your site navigate to your pages, find the offending page,

Create a new page, and then copy over the edited page

Once finished press save.
