The general consesus that I have read on the forum is to have the keyword placed apporximately 3-4 times throughout the article for a 500 word article. Okay no problem.
But when doing my research, I decided to look at the articles that are number one on Google for the search term. When I analyzed these articles, I only found the keyword once or maybe twice in the article.
So if the keyword density is really low how did these articles get to the first page of Google?
These were Ezine articles by the way.
