    2.5% Keyword density is known to be perfect. The reason behind people who haven't used keyword in their first page but are still on top is that they have used the targeted keywords in their Meta Tags, Meta description etc. as this thing gives them a great edge, hence they are able to be on top rankings.

    I've been testing keyword density for a while now and used my new website as a sandbox for this test.

    Upon first index from Google my keyword density for my keyword phrase(3 words) was 3.06% occurring 7 times on the home page. From this I was awarded rank 9 for the keyword phrase.

    Today I got a SERP update after rewriting my home page content so I had 7.52% density occuring 15 times. For this I still have rank 9!

    Test conditions:
    I have not built any links to this website since its creation.
    I used the same text to HTML ratio in both examples.
    I used T,D,K,H1,H2 and anchor text in both examples.
    There were no algo updates during the experiment.

    Result: Keyword variation is a lot more important than keyword density. Time to study your Thesaurus's SEOs!

    Keyword density is important in terms of article submission because there are few sites where you are not allowed to use a keyword more tahn twice or maximum thrice.

    Yes keyword density is important.... That pages which contains lots of keywords will not remain on first page for a long time... so i preffer to use 2 or 3% keywords on a page.

    Keyword density is important, as the keywords reflect their relevant pages. The WebPages must have their relevant keywords in the content. But, if the keyword density is high it is considered as the Keyword stuffing which is not so good in the search engine's point of view. So, according to my experience the keyword density must be as low as possible.

    Yes it is important. keyword density can be used as a factor in determining whether a web page is relevant to a specified keyword or keyword phrase.
