Following the new update, I am concerned that my sitemap might be being seen by google as spam. I have a large number of articles about domain names, which has been a big boost to my traffic etc.
However the sitemap now contains the word "domain" at a density of approx 60%, being the title of articles used as internal link text.

It should never have been at 60% to begin with, as it has got to look somewhat contrived with that one word on the page so much. Does it actually read well with such a high density?

The last thing you want is a penalty that could immediately impact on all the pages linking to it ie. every page on your site.

I am breaking the sitemap up - into sub pages, using Google's own as a model, I figure if its OK for big G - it must be for me!
Also renaming a lot of the articles to push down the density to below 20%. Hopefully that should address the problem.

Have done this now. Hopefully I should be OK now.

Is my keyword density still an issue now, I can further dilute this down by changing the article link text.

I agree 100% the issue was that following the Florida update keywords and internal links are picking up penalties if their density is too high. Which was over 60% on my sitemap page, due to the large number of articles about domains etc.
