    I agree with tedeu. If you go above 15% density, it doesn't matter how much content you have on your site, your content is going to sound awkward and forced. I would shoot for 10% but make sure that the keywords are well-researched. There are several online tools that you can use to quickly check your density.

    yes :)
    because if you have only the keyword in there, or a big procent... google sees it as a spam and who spams goes down :(

    The recommended keyword density is 3-4%. This is what the search engines will accept. Using keywords many times in content does not make it interesting.

    3 - 5% keyword density is enough for a a good readable content. Generally content writers also follow this trend. So try this.

    It's better if you use your keyword naturally and not use it like forcing it in every sentence or topic just be natural.

    Obviously a content writer must use the keywords in the content naturally but keyword density must be perfect then he can write a good content. The content must be very interesting.

    I don't focus on keyword density. All i do is create useful and unique content and that's pretty much it!

    Ok that's good that you focus on uniqueness of the content, but when you are writing a content for your websites for especially SEO purpose, then you should keep in your mind keyword density. Keyword is most important in SEO field.

    you have to use 6-8 keyword in your 400 word article or content but article must be fresh.

    If you write 500 word content you can use 20% keyword compared with total density of the words.

    Hey Jessicayoung 20% is too much i don't so it isperfect for any kind of content. 3 to 5% keyword density is enough and perfect for a good content.

    I am targeting 3%-5% keyword density in the article. It gets good amount of traffic from the search engines.

    Hey mars, actually Keyword Density is also important but there are so many things which we must keep in our mind. We must follow Google parameters, and according to that create a good strategy to get good SEO values.
