In this article, we will find out what constitutes nausea of the text (sometimes it is called nausea) and what meaning this characteristic must take in order for the text to be considered “good”.
What is text nausea?
This is an SEO characteristic that shows the ratio of search queries in the text to the total number of characters. The more key phrases, the higher the percentage of nausea. Material with a high rate of nausea is considered spammed.
Google and Yandex don’t like article pages that have a high percentage of nausea. Both systems expect only high-quality sites with meaningful content to appear in the top search queries.
Therefore, search engines treat resources with spammed pages negatively and impose sanctions against them. Google, for example, uses the Panda algorithm to find such sites and underestimates the amount of traffic to unwanted pages.
To regain your traffic and remove all sanctions, you need to reduce the number of keywords in the text so that it does not look like it was specially created for search engines.
Types of text nausea
If you have ever written custom texts or seen the corresponding technical specifications on online exchanges, then you know that customers indicate the percentage of nausea that must be observed, as well as the type of this nausea. It can be classical or academic.
The classic algorithm calculates the percentage of nausea using the following formula:
√number of duplicate keywords
For example, you have exactly 25 identical keys for all material. The square root of 25 is 5. This figure will be the value of the classic nausea of the text. That is 5%. It is believed that the upper limit is 7%. If it is exceeded, then supposedly search engines will begin to impose sanctions, and traffic will decrease.
But it is not so. The method for calculating classic nausea does not take into account the number of characters in the article. Even if you are writing a 60,000-character “dissertation”, 49 repetitive words will immediately put your work on the list of objectionable ones. So this characteristic cannot be considered objective.
A more advanced and honest algorithm for counting nausea. Uses the following formula:
The number of all repeated phrases (morphological similarities) / Text volume × by 100%
If you wrote a text of 4,000 characters, and it repeats one word form 52 times, then the percentage of nausea will be at the level of 1.3%. The optimal value is considered to be a range between 1% and 6%, but some users believe that it is necessary to aim for a value of no more than 4%, since the algorithm for calculating academic nausea is quite “gentle”. Although such requirements cannot always be considered adequate.
How to count nausea? Services to check
Knowing the formulas described above, you can independently calculate the percentage of spamming, but it will take a lot of time. Therefore, people have created automated machines that do an excellent job of this task.

- Text.ru – there is no such characteristic as “nausea” in the Tekst.ru service, but there is “spaminess”. It is calculated in a slightly different way, but it is also often used by text authors and customers on exchanges.
How to reduce the percentage of nausea?
Obviously, to reduce the nausea of the text, it is necessary to work with the density of the keys. There are three effective ways to edit articles to dilute the keywords in them:
Replacement of some phrases with synonymous and similar ones. You can always find suitable queries for which you can compete for ranking in the tops of Google and Yandex.
To reduce classic nausea, you can use modified word forms. Add additional words to the main keys, change endings and play with other morphological characteristics.
You can extend the text to reduce academic nausea. The more characters, the lower the percentage of keywords in it. This means that the counting formula will work in your favor.
When optimizing text, it is important not to forget that too few keys have consequences too. Consult with your SEO specialist – he should indicate the required number of searches in the article.
Instead of a conclusion
To break into the top with information materials, you need to maintain a balance between the “sharpening” of the text for the requirements of search engines and the requirements of potential readers.
It is necessary to publish interesting content on the site, familiarity with which will benefit visitors. And to the characteristics in the spirit of uniqueness, nausea, etc. should be treated as a tool to achieve certain goals in the promotion, and not as a clear instruction that must be followed unquestioningly. Target your readers.
