    There is no concept of "Keywords Density" after recent Google updates. Just focus on Quality Content and optimize your website for relevant keywords along with LSI keywords.


    Good luck.

    The days of "keyword density" are long, long gone. Get your main keyword in the title tag, some variation of it in a heading and make sure it appears in the text at least once. Then, get as many of the LSI words (Google's related phrases) on the page as you can.

    What's better than 100%? You never hear anything bad about 100%, except from the fools that go around claiming they're giving 110%. Are you one of them? Than make it 110%.

    In other words, there's no need for you to worry about keyword density.

    keyword density in SEO?
    Keyword density is the percentage of the number of times a keyword appears on a page divided by the total number of words in that page.
    • (Number of keywords/ Total number of words) * 100
    • 1-3% of keyword density along with "semantic keywords" and LSI keywords
    So where should you place your keyword?
    • In the permalink
    • H1 tag
    • H2 tag
    • Meta title tag
    • Start of the article
    • End of the article
    • Add relevant images and use your target keyword as anchor text
    Again: Avoid stuffing your article with keywords just to increase keyword density.

    Nobody cares about keyword density anymore. Just don't overcrowd your pages with keywords that's it. Make it relevant and natural.

    Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on a web page compared to the total number of words on the page. In the context of search engine optimization, keyword density can be used to determine whether a web page is relevant to a specified keyword or keyword phrase.

    In the late 1990s, the early days of search engines, keyword density was an important factor in page ranking. However, as webmasters discovered how to implement optimum keyword density, search engines began giving priority to other factors beyond the direct control of webmasters. Today, the overuse of keywords, a practice called keyword stuffing, will cause a web page to be penalized.

    Many SEO experts consider the optimum keyword density to be 1 to 3 percent; more could be considered search spam. The formula to calculate your keyword density on a web page for SEO purposes is ( N k r / T k n ) -- 100 {\displaystyle (Nkr/Tkn)*100} {\displaystyle (Nkr/Tkn)*100}, where Nkr is how many times you repeated a specific keyword, and Tkn the total words in the analyzed text. The result is a keyword density value. When calculating keyword density, ignore html tags and other embedded tags which will not appear in the text of the page once published.

    When calculating the density of a keyword phrase, the formula would be ( N k r -- N w p / T k n ) -- 100 {\displaystyle (Nkr*Nwp/Tkn)*100} {\displaystyle (Nkr*Nwp/Tkn)*100}, where Nwp is the number of words in the phrase. So, for example, for a four-hundred word page about search engine optimization where "search engine optimization" is used four times, the keyword phrase density is (4*3/400)*100 or 3 percent.

    From a mathematical viewpoint, the original concept of keyword density refers to the frequency (Nkr) of appearance of a keyword in a dissertation. A "keyword" consisting of multiple terms, e.g. "blue suede shoes," is an entity in itself. T frequency of the phrase "blue suede shoes" within a dissertation drives the key(phrase) density. It is "more" mathematically correct for a "keyphrase" to be calculated just like the original calculation, but considering the word group, "blue suede shoes," as a single appearance, not three:

    Density = ( Nkr / Tkn ) * 100.

    'Keywords' (kr) that consist of several words artificially inflate the total word count of the dissertation. The purest mathematical representation should adjust the total word count (Tkn) lower by removing the excess key(phrase) word counts from the total:

    Density = ( Nkr / ( Tkn -( Nkr * ( Nwp-1 ) ) ) ) * 100. where Nwp = the number of terms in the keyphrase.

    This general formula allows that the total word count will be unaffected if the key(phrase) is indeed a single term, so it acts as the original formula.

      Oh, my! You actually know how to copy content from Wikepedia and paste it on another web page. I am duly impressed!

      Do you know what you copied and pasted means?

      Do you know how it applies to SEO?

    Agree that it isn't as important to Google anymore but I think it's still a good measure of how relevant ur content is to a topic, and a way to make sure you aren't repeating the same words over and over.

    If you look at most of the top ranking affiliate-esque sites in any niche they still tend to abide to the 1-3% rule of a few years back.

    There's a free website word count tool here you can use to see percentages of keywords in niche articles.

    Keyword density is a percentage of times a keyword is coming on the page divided by total number of words on the page multiply by hundred.
    The optimized keyword density is around 1-3% for search engines.
