I have potential new client who has hundreds of keywords and suburbs crammed onto the bottom of every page. In addition, they have keywords repeated far too frequently in the actual page content too.

I've explained to them that thier customers don't want to read text that says "We provide pet grooming in Springfield, pet grooming on Oakville, pet grooming in Riverside", and that if I SEO their site - all that will have to change.

The problem is, that strategy is working for them, and I cannot guarantee that my more visitor-friendly techniques will keep their visitor/new customer stats as high.

They bought my explanation about why spammy SEO is not pleasant for visitors, but now they seem to think a combination of my style and the spammy style would be just perfect!

I'm not sure where to go with this now. Anyone had a similar exerience?

It's a tricky situation.

On the one hand, you don't want to wreck a good thing. On the other, rewriting the content and removing the keyword stuffing will likely help not hurt.

Problem is, you can't guarantee that it won't hurt. A compromise to start might actually be a good idea. If that doesn't hurt the rankings, you could move more and more towards removing the stuffing all together.

It is tough though because sometimes Google does indeed reward keyword stuffing. Or it just might be ranking well despite the keyword stuffing.

That's a fair thought Jill - thanks.
