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.

Keyword density can vary when analyzing a page for various search engines. Different search engines may use different stop words or stemming techniques, resulting in a word being counted by one engine and not counted by another. Aside from the problem of determining what constitutes a word, there is also the problem of determining which tags various search engines will support. The most basic scenario might have a search engine using only <body> text. More elaborate scenarios might have a search engine using <body> text, ALT tags, META tags, comment tags, and a handful of other tags.

Keyword density is a combination of the number of times a keyword or a keyword phrase, in proportion with other words, appears on a Web page. The more times the keyword appears in relation to the total number of on page words, the greater the overall keyword density. The more times that other words appear, the lower the proportion of keywords, resulting in a lighter keyword density.

Well, there is an appropriate keyword density for every page, which should be about 2% to 5% of the total words.

Keyword Density has to do with making sure your static pages and blog posts have a good ratio of content to keywords. Keyword density of 3-7% used to be the accepted ratio. It is now 2-4%. If you optimize for a density above 4% you’ll see it makes for a stiff, awkward reading experience which is not what you want. 2% gives you good SEO plus a good reading experience.

This is a useful information. Thanks for sharing. I was also unaware about keyword density. I have only the basic idea, that keyword can be use 3 to 4 times in 400 words based content. Thanks again for clearing my concept.

Hi All,

Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on a web page by the total number of words on the page.
