After the last google update, what is classed as a too high of a keyword density?
I was ranking really well on a site for a certain keyword, which i no longer am. Ive just checked the % keyword density using seoworkers.com, the keyword i no longer rank well for is showing as 7%.
Ran the same test on a competitors site (they are ranked number one), showing a keyword density of just 2%.

There is no such thing as keyword density in SEO anymore. Your content is either spam, or it's not spam. Write content naturally, for your users, and you will find the best results; if I'm honest, any webmaster that considers keyword density in their content has been asleep for the past year and a half!
Of course there are still a ton of other onpage best practices that you should follow, keyword density is just no longer one of them.

Are you seriously telling something like
I like FAST CARS.If you have ever driven FAST CARS you will realise what a buzz you get driving FAST CARS.
(and as someone who does real seo I see this ALL the time affecting sites,)
doesn't affect your serps(that is keyword density btw).Penguin is the update which deals with this.Now ask yourself does the above short sentence look spammy,yes,why,keyword density....next.
Show me a site in the top 3 using keyword density like that in an article.
Oh and define your version of spam please...
You raised one valid point,write content for your sites visitors.
OP,aim for 1.5 - 2% main keyword density (on page).Once done get some high pr links so googlebot spiders your site and the changes are updated.
Go to www.seocentro.com and run the keyword analyser to get %'s

To be completely honest, I struggled to understand any of your rant. The bit that I did get about fast cars seems to of missed my point entirely.
Will not entertain.

laterooms.com ranks second for 'hotels' for me. Keyword density, according to your tool, is 17.2%.

Late rooms is a PR6 site,thats the difference and although the word hotels is 17.2% a vast majority of that % is anchortext.I
Show me a PR 2 site with 17.5% keyword density.If you look at the payday loans examples here and indeed in the serps right now the odd results are PR6 sites with very good age,they will rank for anything,as the payday loans example show.Trust is the word.The infamous froginthewell site was hacked with php to change certain words to by read by google as different words than those that are seen by visitors e.g
preg_replace("[what you are searching for]","[what you wish to replace it with]","[the text to search]")
Low pr untrusted sites will not take high keyword density.
