    The good keyword density is around 0.5% - 2.5%

    I do not think google relies on keyword density as it once did...
    however, if visitors find your site spammy, then they will leave quickly, then
    this will give google an indication that visitors did not find the site useful....

    You want to keep visitors on the site as long as possible, so 5k words is
    good providing the content is useful, and provides value to visitors; If your
    content is good, but your design/format is bad, then this could increase bounce rate....

    avoid keyword repeating from one post to the next, sometimes there maybe
    a need, but you do not want each post competing for the same keyword(s)....
    google may index what it feels is most relevant, then ignore the rest...

    When having a site, there are quite a few things that can affect rankings...

    If I was focused on keyword density, then I would go between 1-1.5%

    Hi, density 1 to 2% is fine. I experienced writing article, and when a keyword has over density, the article cannot be submitted successfully in directories. According to what I know, Google does change its algorithms, hence a keyword may not get ranked in the TOP page forever. Hence, content quality is very important rather than ranking in SEO.

    What I would really suggest you doing is using long-tail keywords in a density 0.5-1.5%. What is bios? Try to make it longer and more targeted, describing it better. For example, Basic Input/Output System, functions of bios, etc. Long-tail keywords contain 3-4 words or more and it normally ranks higher.

    For keywords density you can also install Yoast SEO plugin if you're using Wordpress. It shows if keyword density is too low or too high and also other aspects and errors that need to be fixed for better SEO. I hope this helps.

    0.5% - 2.5% is the recommendation from Yoast, it's the most popular WordPress SEO plugin currently.

    Keyword density does not matter anymore but if you the keywords in the post where required and don't ruin your post then it is Good but who actually care about this, I may be wrong but I never focused on it.

    It's still the important factor, man. If you want to rank a keyword on top of SERPs then you need to focus that keyword in your post. And the times you repeat (keyword density) that keyword is really a matter.

    Do you have a Wordpress site? I assume you do. Install the Yoast plugin, and then when doing any posts/pages, you'll see their report. Follow it. Some items such as "Stop Keywords" can be ignored, for example, if you did a post about "Legend Of Zelda", the stop keyword is "Of", so you obviously can't remove even though Yoast suggests removing Stop keywords. Let me know if that helps.

    This is a powerful plugin and it can help you to calculate the keyword density too.

    Google doesn't bother keyword density anymore unless you make your page so stuffed with keywords in which the content is ridiculous to read.

    For targeting long tail keywords you should have less keyword density. For competitive short keywords, your keyword density should be higher. I don't think there is a magic number.

    Just write naturally for your readers and include the targeted keyword in your article.
