Today marks the release of another free tool for freelance writers -- a free keyword density analyzer. Before you groan about the evils of SEO content though, check out the press release below for more details. It was made with writers in mind to help you not only improve keyword density based on client requests, but also improve readability! As with any press release, feel free to publish the release below elsewhere if you'd like to spread the word about our tools.

Freelance writing blog, All Freelance Writing (http://AllFreelanceWriting.com), released the latest in their collection of free online tools and resources for freelance writers -- a keyword density analyzer. The keyword density tool is tailored to the specific needs of writers who worry not only about general keyword density for search engine optimization (SEO) purposes for clients, but who also need to keep an emphasis on readability.

"Many keyword density analyzers do little more than offer the frequency of a keyword or phrase within an article," said All Freelance Writing Founder, Jennifer Mattern. "Those keyword density checkers might be fine if someone only cares about reaching a specific density for search engine rankings, but it completely neglects real readers. The tool released on All Freelance Writing overcomes this. Not only does it allow writers to track word counts and keyword density, but it also shows the writer where those words and phrases are located in relation to each other, so they can avoid 'keyword stuffing' which is a turn-off to readers."

The All Freelance Writing keyword density analyzer accomplishes this by providing a preview on-site that highlights each keyword phrase (up to three) in a different color. This provides writers with a visual representation of that keyword density. Whereas density calculations in general let a writer know whether they should add or remove instances of a keyword or phrase, this highlighting feature helps them move existing words and phrases around instead to improve readability without affecting overall keyword density (which is often dictated by the client).

Writers can calculate the density of up to three different keyword phrases at once. The tool provides the user with the overall word count, the number of times a keyword or phrase appears within the text, and the keyword density percentage for each word or phrase chosen. Writers can also choose the minimum character count for what will constitute a word in the word count and calculations (up to four characters). This allows them to comply with keyword density requirements from clients who prefer not to count one or two-letter words in the overall count.

The keyword density analyzer can be found at http://allfreelancewriting.com/keyword-density-analyzer/ where users fill out a simple form. Just copy the article text into the main box, add up to three keyword phrases in the subsequent boxes, and the results appear automatically. This is a "live" keyword density checker so there is no wait time. If the writer wants to view they keyword distribution, they can click the "show text" button at the bottom of the form to display the highlighted text. When they make changes and want to view the new distribution, they should click the "hide text" button and then "show text" again. That automatically clears the old data and presents the updated highlighted text.

The keyword density analyzer is the latest in a line of new features and free tools to benefit freelance writers including two word count trackers, a freelance hourly rate calculator, free WordPress themes for writers looking to build a blog or professional site, a new professional freelance writing marketplace, and the upcoming freelance tax calculator and writer's market directory launching in March. Writer freebies can be accessed through http://allfreelancewriting.com/stuff-for-writers/ or the "free stuff" link at the top of the blog. The new freelance writing marketplace can be found at http://allfreelancewriting.com/freelance-writing-marketplace/.

    Thanks for the free analyzer. I use a couple of other tools, but I haven’t been doing this. Thanks for the reminder!

    I blogged about this on my company blog here: http://tinyurl.com/seo4readers

    Hey there! Thanks for putting up such a great tool for free. Sorry I haven’t been around much, but I’m only getting very small time blocks at the PC. Even at night “when everyone goes to bed” our baby thinks he still needs to stay up most the time… just as he does when I try to get him to take naps!

    Just wanted to let you know the link to the Keyword Density Analyzer tool is coming up as a 404 error.

      Hmmm. That’s weird. It’s as if the original URL dropped its category tag (shouldn’t have) after being posted. I’ll go in now and redirect the bad URL to the right one. Thanks for the heads up!

    It is working for me…

    I tell you what – I love this thing! It’s fast, it’s accurate… no more Word mathematics late at night for me.

      Great. I think I’ll do a short post on this tool today actually, so I can explain some of the quirks with the word count and such. We went through a lot of testing and a lot of tough decisions about what to include and what not to include in that. I think we got rid of all of the problem areas (numbers, en dashes, em dashes, and some other symbols that were popping up). Glad it’s working well so far though! :)
