    Keyword density % isn't a big issue, just make sure your keyword is appears at least once in your copy.

    You don't want it to appear too much so your copy sounds stupid too... but honestly there is no optimal percentage.

    In order to get a quality content. Make sure that your keywords can only use it twice or thrice. Or it must have only 2-3 keywords in every content. In this way, your keyword can get a quality thing through indexing it.

    After Google Panda algorithm it is mandatory for webmasters and publishers to maintain a keyword density of 2-3% in any content. Google Panda is the latest algorithm of Google which was put 8 months back and was meant mainly to punish those people who were involved in the content farming. Inititally the allowed keyword density was 4-5% but after Panda update it was reduced to 2-3%

    keyword density is a waste of time, makes your content low quality, write good quality content that thing doesn't help your rankings...

    I don't agree that Keyword density is no more important. In fact it still holds importance and Search engines are still looking for content that are not stuffed with keywords. Had it not been important webmasters could abuse and manipulate it to rank their website high in the search engine result page.

    It doesn't really matter, as long as it sounds good. But definitely shouldn't be more then 5%.

    I try to stay between 2 -4% and I make sure it appears in the title, first two lines of the first paragraph and the last line of the last paragraph.

    Sorry but this is complete and utter garbage. Google does not publish any keyword percentages, either in Panda or anywhere else. The advice from Google is that using a keyword 2 or 3 times on a page is ok, but any more than that is not going to benefit. If you want to know what they actually say, see this video from Matt Cutts in which he categorically states that there is no ideal percentage:

    The keyword rate should be proper in a article. The keyword plays an important role in site ranking.

    Thanks @turkishhomes for the Matt Cutts video. He's always a bit cagey about what he reveals, but it was helpful.

    It almost sounds like Matt's saying they have gotten shockingly more strict about what they consider keyword stuffing. Scary.

    I was always advised to use your keyword 1 in every 100 words so 5 times for a 500 word article. Just don't overdo it, as the earlier replies say if you overuse it your article doesn't make sense half the time.

    I guess I have the same concern just like with the TS. Sometimes I used it twice on my article regardless of the word count.
