When you are writing content for a page, what is your keyword density? First off, I will explain what keyword density is. When you are targeting a certain word or phrase, you want that phrase to be in your content. Well the number of times you used that word devided by the number of words in your article is your keyword density.

There is a delicate balance you want to maintain. You dont want too little of a keyword density and you dont want too big of a keyword density. If your keyword density is too little, then the search engines might not pick up on it. If your keyword density is too big, then it creates a difficult time for the reader and the search engine may recognize this technique.

In this writing, my keyword density for the phrase "keyword density" is 5.6% not counting this sentence. Many say 3-7% is the optimal keyword density. In my opinion, I think 3-7% is the optimal. Others say anywhere from 5-20% is optimal.
