    How to use keywords (how many, density, word count)

    Hi people,

    Just now i found this forum, i have some doubts in Search Engine Optimization, since i was in this field for 7 months, i have lots of doubts, so coming to the point.
    My question is how many keywords should i take for a site?
    How many keywords should i use per page?
    if i have 500 words as a content of the webpage, how much keyword density should i use in 2015?

    Please help me with this

    Thank you

    Hello and welcome.

    Regarding keywords - we've been getting a lot of questions about them lately. Please use our search function (Advanced Search - SEO Chat Forums) in the future to search for related questions.

    Can I reuse keywords to build SEO credibility?

    I think the prevailing opinion around here is that keyword density is a myth. Write for your users, not for search engines. Use your keyword like a normal person would.

    You can't do SEO that way.

    A website or even just a page of that domain will rank for whatever it can.

    Trying to quantify those as fixed numbers is impossible.

    e.g. Car & Cars, new car, old car, used car, are also automobile & the cutoff version auto, vehicle, and 10s of thousands of brand names & designators, differenent types, like a sports car, jeep, convertible, hatchback, slangs like ragtop, jalopy, or four-wheeler and the list goes on.

    Write naturally is the best advice and let the interested readers of your readership decide for you afterthefact.
