    Use your main keyword in first 50-100 words and do the same at end. Try to use secondary keywords in H2 headings and make sure do not exceed the keywords more than 2-3% of your article..

    Its better if you put your main keyword within each paragraph of your content and a limited range of 2-3% for each page. The keyword which you prefer or suits mostly for your websites should highlighted with H1 tags and less valuable at h2, h3,h4,.... tags respectively. And 1 more thing bold your keywords so that it can visible for google and placed it in a meaningful way, i.e for readers not for Google. Feel free to comment in my words.

    Never stuff keywords too much in the article, its bad for SEO, always use 2% Keyword. You should also use the keyword in the link of your post.

    Keyword Stuffing means using your main keyword directly again and again in content which is too much bad practice for on page optimization.

    My experience of these things are, you shall really focus on humans rather than the search engine.
    If humans like your text, the search engine will notice and give you credit for this! And reverse...!

    Always try to aim for a keyword density of 2-4% which seems to work best.

    You can try including your main keyword in the first 300-400 words, but try to make it seem natural as keyword stuffing can be detrimental to SEO if done wrong

    Keyword stuffing is forcing too many keywords in one article. When I say forcing, I really mean ‘forcing’, to the extent that your content suffers from readability and quality. If you want to avoid this, make sure that your keyword is less than 3% of your content. Put your first keyword in the first 100 words of your text but make sure that it will look natural. If you have a second keyword then put it in the next 150 word, again make it natural.

    Key word stuffing is basically adding keywords in the content just to get advantage in the SERPs.
    The keywords are stuffed in the content or the content is written keeping in mind that keywords have to be inserted in the content. Today search engines are getting smarter and it recognizes the webpages that are stuffed with keywords this has a negative impact on the website. At max one must not use more that 1 to 3% of keywords. Also remember the content that you are writing is for the users and not the search engines. If the content is good then it will rank well in SERPs.

    A SEO technique used by Web designers to overload keywordsonto a Web page so that search engines will read the page as being relevant in a Web search.

    Because search engines scan Web pages for the words that are entered into the search criteria by the user, the more times a keyword appears on the Web page the more relevancy the search engine will assign to the page in the search results (this is only one way that search engines determine relevancy, however.)

    Search engines often penalize a site if the engine discovers keyword stuffing, as this practice is considered poor netiquette, and some search engines will even ban the offending Web pages from their search results.

    It's when you know how searching works and you take advantage of it by adding a million metaphrases so that they can be correlated with almost anything anyone will search.
    This has a bad rep for not only providing wrongful info, general nuissance, clogging the web results etc. but probably because it's also unintelligent.

    Keyword Stuffing is nothing but keyword cloud in the article. There should not be to many keywords in the article which can make article spam. Use keyword density tool to optimize your content keywords. The optimum keyword density should be 3 to 5%.

    Keyword stuffing is the term used for over usage of keywords in one post or article. It is recommended to keep the keyword usage between 2-3% of words in your article.

    Keyword stuffing means--- excessive use of keyword in order to force search engine to take the page on a good position in SERP. It is a bad practice.
    Proper use of keyword is very important, but it should have certain limit. 3% is a smart amount where LSI keyword (synonymous) can be used as google prefer LSI.

    Say your site is trying to rank for Blue Bells and Yellow Bells. Many times you will see them a in keyword repeated multiple times across the title tag. It might appear like this:
    Blue Bells, Yellow Bells, All Types of Bells | Bells Bells and More | Doors.com
    This is keyword Stuffing. you must avoid it. you can write like this to avoid stuffing:
    Blue & Yellow Bells | Doorbells | Doors.com
