The keyword "website" appears 12 times on my site REMOVED however Google Webmaster Tools doesn't list that keyword at all in Google Index/Content Keywords. Using other keyword analysis tools offers mixed results, some find them and others do not. Is there something about the word website, and is there a better method to measure the accuracy of results?

 

Many thanks!

Go to  google, type in site:your site.com +"keyword" and you'll see all the pages that are using the keyword in question. If you want to see how many times it appears on each page, use a highlighting tool.

Thanks Jill, the command you provided indeed displayed the pages using the keyword "website". I wasn't sure whether Google not displaying that keyword in the Content Keywords list was significant, I'm not understanding why it isn't showing up, and wasn't sure it was something I could just ignore. 

 

Chris, poor wording on my part, intent was to question which tools' results do you trust when results are inconsistent. From what I'm discovering, Google's Content Keyword list isn't accurate in my case since it doesn't report on the keyword "website" at all.

Google's Webmaster Tools have never been very accurate so I wouldn't worry too much about what you are asking.

 

With regards to better tools that are more reliable, there are tons of site auditors that can help you with checking the content but I don't think it's too important unless you just need to scan a new client's website to make sure nothing was keyword stuffed.

 

Since most of the incoming Google keywords are now "not provided", Webmaster Tools is actually the best place to find incoming organic keyword data now.

Aah, okay. As in the post above, Google webmaster tools isn't an 'absolute', it's more of a "things you may not have noticed" information tool, and you certainly should not give any credence to the "Relevance" score for the "Content keywords" list,  as it is a "words you use a lot" score not a "words we think might be 'important' to you" score.

It is also somewhat misleading for anyone relatively new to Search (say five years or less) because a 'site' doesn't have 'key' words, individual URIs have key words that you are associating with the document located at that URL.
