    2. Does Title comes into consideration?
    3. Does Alt Tags to be counted?

    Let me know if i'm not clear on my question

    Thanks in Advance..

    Keyword density means the percentage of times a keyword is used on a webpage compared to the total number of words on a particular web page. And I don't think that meta tags words count while calculating keywords density.

    Keyword density refers to how many times the target keyword was used in the article. It does not include meta description, title or alt tags.

    Hope that helps. Have a good day!

    Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on a web page compared to the total number of words on the page. In the context of search engine optimization keyword density can be used as a factor in determining whether a web page is relevant to a specified keyword or keyword phrase.

    Keyword density is a jargon term in SEO that refers to the number of times your keyword phrase appears on the page.

    Keyword density is the ratio, how many times you use your keywords in webpage. It is the standard 3%-5%. If you use your keywords more then the limit, your content will come in keyword stuffing and it is a black hat SEO technique. Search Engines don't allow to use it, if you use it, your website may ban or penalize.
    There are many online tools for check the Keyword density of your web page. I use Website Auditor in SEO Powersuit.

    Keyword density shows how many times keyword appears in content. Between 2% to 5% is the ideal keyword density.

    Google calculates keyword density by calculating number of repeated keyword on a page/number of total words on a page*100.

    Keyword Density means that how many keywords are used in the web content of your landing page. it should be approx 4-5% in 1000 words content.

    Keyword density means how many times your keywords appears on a webpage and it compared with the total words on a page.

    As I know all these things are not considered for calculating keyword density.
