    I am getting ready to make my first post to a new wordpress site. I am going to keep the top post sticky and then keep posting other posts underneath it. I have a list of about 100 keywords that are relevant to the site and the post. But I don't want to set off any of googs red flags.

    Is it advisable to stuff all the keywords to help in the serps, or only select 30-40, 10-20? I am not really sure about this and have gotten mixed results in the past. I'm hoping an expert who has done some research on the topic could chime in.

    Thank you in advance for your information and advice!

    Keyword stuffing? In 2011 (soon to be 2012)? Are you fucking kidding me? :D

    Do you mean stuffing each post you make with a single keyword or making a site that targets a lot of keywords? Sorry, I couldnt quite understand what you were asking. However, keyword stuffing each post is going to give you nothing but problems...

    Big list of keywords = no
    Repeating the same keyword over and over and over in a post = no
    Naturally inserting lots of keywords into your text = yes
    Stuffing short lists of keywords into divs hidden with javascript = yes
    A short "tags" list stuffed with keywords = yes

    The less competitive the keyphrase, the more you can get away with obvious keyword stuffing. For competitive mainstream keywords, over the top keyword stuffing will get you consigned to the bottom of the serps. If it's a blog then just keep it looking natural and you'll be fine.

    For a short second (is there really a short second) I thought this was about cooking a turkey and stuffing it properly.

    Autumn gave you some solid advice... follow it but Never, Ever open any link that Autumn posts.

    Ever!

    I apologize, stuffing was not the phrase I was looking for. I didn't mean stuffing within the post. What I meant was stuffing the tags with keywords. The post is written naturally with a ton of keywords inserted, but not stuffed. I just wasn't sure how many tags I should add. Like i said, I have had mixed results in the past. Some sites do well with 150 tags and some don't. How many tags would you suggest, on a moderately competitive term?

    I have it on good authority that Google can read and parse JavaScript very well nowadays.

    Thanks BTB. But I have to give credit where credit is due... I actually stole that from the official Google keyword density guidelines.

    I agree and that has been my experience. The point is to give you plausible deniability for having hidden content by putting in the show / hide controls from a well known js library like jquery into the page. That way you don't just have obvious, isolated hidden divs - you have content that appears to be intended to be shown or hidden with js that is on the page, rather than just hidden from users all the time through devious css trickery.

    OK, that makes a lot more sense, now that you mention functionality with jQuery.

    Well that is part of the plan, but it's a lot easy to backlink for one main home page, than to try and come up with several different backlinking strategies for several different inner pages. I do plan on doing that, but for now I just want to work on the home page.

    So, I apologize for screwing up the way I asked the question on this post. How many tags should I include for a moderately competitive post?
