    I have never heard of actual KWD figures, that said Google demands that you don't over do your copy. So write content that is real as through you would want to read it.

    No one wants to read "I got the coke, drank the coke, then had a smoke with the coke, then I threw out the empty coke"

    I use KWD tools to help me identify where I can add more keywords but also to show my writings if I am getting to focused on words as well.

    All Google wants to see is that you use common sense... start over doing it and sooner or later your ranking will slide.

    Cheers

    Keyword Density is calculated by
    Keyword Density = ([Keyword Count]*100)/(Total Word Count]

    For example, let’s say that you have a 500 word article about free website templates, and you are optimizing for “templates”

    - Total Word Count: 500
    - Templates keyword occurence: 12
    “Templates” density = (12*100)/500

    Keyword density for “Templates” on the page is 2.4%

    In SEO campaigns, having keyword optimization in your on-page content is very important to being relevant to the search engines.

    Good keyword density is between 3% - 5%.

    General rules are to use the keyword in the:
    Title
    Meta Tags
    H1 Tag
    Then once in Bold, once in Italic.
    Be sure to use it in your content near the top of the page, and in the last paragraph. (My opinion)

    Keyword density is the proportion of times a keyword or phrase appears on a web page compared to the total number of terms or words on the page. In the background of search engine optimization keyword density can be used as an issue in determining whether a web page is related to a specified keyword or keyword phrase. Many SEO Engineer think the best keyword density to be 1 to 3 percent. Using a keyword more than that could be considered search spam.

    normally use keyword density 2-3%, first should consider that have to show your website to visitor not for search engine crawler so make content in natural way.

    Why in the world would you do that?

    Try this.... I have a website/page with the word FAT on it... how on Earth do I do 2-3% of that?

    Would that be like :

    (I think that's probably more than 3% FAT though!)

    Is this thread a joke or goof? Are these KWD supporters for real? Wow........... at least stand up for what you believe in or thank fathom for setting you straight and getting you off the KWD boat.

    If you are so inept on sticking to a certain frequency of keywords and density (still don't know why people regurgitate this info) try using a thesaurus and get synonyms at least.
