A discussion of search engine friendly content and how the problem with most websites is that they don’t have enough of it on their search engine optimized pages.
Is it possible to have too much SEO on your website? The answer is no. In fact the majority of websites are sadly lacking in true search engine indexable content. This is because almost half of most web pages consist of blank space that are read by the search engine spiders as being nothing. Remember too that the problem is worsened by the fact that most search engine spiders also read flash animation (as typically found with banners and graphics) and photographs as blank space too.
To be truly optimized experts say that your site should contain at least 200 words of keyword dense text. That is the minimum that you need on there to attract the attention of the search engine spiders that determine what content is indexable by the amount of text used on the page.
Yet another important thing to remember is that the impact of keywords on search engine spiders is maximized if the keywords that you use in this minimum 200-word length text also match your page titles. For instance a site selling psychic advice that is owned by a company called PsychicsRUs should have both psychic advice and PsychicsRUs somewhere in the body of the text.
Just how long is a 200 words. The above three paragraphs is 203 words which gives you an idea of the minimum chunk of copy that has to be on your website for it to be considered optimized. As you can see it is not a lot of copy. There is a big debate about whether or not you can overdo SEO text on a website page. To avoid overdoing simply make sure that whatever SEO copy you are writing is friendly for both humans and bots to read and that should weed out any keywords that are serving as “overkill.”
