>I am a marketing consultant specializing in sales strategies, marketing plans and website promotion. I have designed, optimized and written content for my new site using highly targeted keyword phrases (3-7 times), although I have used "marketing" as a minor keyword.
>I'm just about to post and I noticed that the word "marketing" appears 18 times on my home page! (includes copy, and alt tags). My first inclination was to remove it from my keyword list completely. But it is my field of business, and it doesn't make much sense not to include it. Any suggestions other than re-writing the content?

Some of our best ranking pages have keywords in the body text up to 25 times on a page with 600 words (+- 100), as well as the title and metas.
