Your question is rather vague. Please clarify what you want to know in your next post. That will help us to understand what you really want to convey through your post.

May I ask what was that conflicting information you've heard?

In some cases, it really depends on how many keywords you would like to use. I suggest you filter and choose wisely.

Actually there is no such particular norm on this. Generally 4-8 keywords are used.

I would say 3-5 target keywords is realistic for a single page. Make sure each page has its unique set of keywords and metatags.

You might look at it this way...

The more keywords you put in title/description/keywords/text the less focused your page will become. However, if you work only on one keyword, you can really focus on it and get very good results, so it depends on your strategy.

However, I would not use more than 4 keywords in title and more than 7 in kescription/keywords.

However, try to keep around 3 for each. This is just my suggestion and it worked for me. You must find your style that will work for you.

And next time, please be more specific with your question.

I suggest limit it to 5. You can use more than 5 keywords if you can write it as content.

Targeting up to five keywords in a webpage is ideal. It's pointless to stuff your tags with tons of keywords if you wouldn't optimize them.

I think 8-10 keyword is enough because too much keyword will lessen its effects and besides you will be having a hard ranking all of your keywords..

I think a little bit of keyword density is okay, I don’t want to stick to a pattern though with a 5% or 7% density. It should rather be natural, not machine like. :wink: :wink:

As long as you don't stuff your keywords and it wouldn't look spamming, you'll be fine... :) Don't repeat your main keywords over and over..

Hi dear fellows:
Well it depends on the object that you are going to post on the web. Generally 8-10 keywords are considered enough for posting some thing in the internet. However, it should be make sure that keywords are different and should not be repeated in the one post.
