    Keyword density simply refers as the total percentage of a keyword and parse used on any webpage as compared to the total number of words used to that webpage. Keyword density is really very important for search engine ranking because it is used to determine that, webpage is relevant to that specific keyword.

    That ^ is correct
    Also, to determine keyword density, you have a lot of options, personally I prefer a tool called wordcounter, it's so easy to use and it helps me keep the density of the keywords to 1-2% (which is recommended).

      ROTFLMAO!

      The blind leading the blind, or in this case, following.

      Keyword density has nothing to with anything, except showing how dense
      some people can be.

    Like I'm sure others have said, the keyword density refers to the amount of times a targeted word or phrase (keyword) shows up in text/content. As a rule of thumb most people recommend 1%-2% keyword density and nothing above 3%.

    If the density is just right it will receive better treatment from google and other search engines. If it is too high, however, it may be penalized and will produce nothing until the content is optimized to correct parameters.

    Hope this helped clarify things.

    Normally we use 2-3% keyword density for a web page to keep our website safe from Google panda update, because it seems like spam...

    I don't see keyword density effecting a website anymore. Also, when you are writing an article, do not think that you have to use certain no. of keywords to rank higher.

    SEO has changed a lot in the recent times, it's no more the way it used to be. Try to research and you will find so many of these terms are now obsolete (anybody remember pagerank!!!)

    Keyword Density is real but it's a red herring. KD is the limit that the various engines put on how often a term can appear before it's considered spam. The number is purely arbitrary and asking what it is is to invite you to run right up against it. If I were to tell you it's 15% would you tweak your page to 14%? Ignore KD and definitely avoid intentionally "loading" a page with terms.

    Read your own content. Do you sound like a used car salesman or an infomercial? Would you change the channel on your own content? If so, Google will likely feel the same. Write naturally. That is the first law of SEO content.
