    A couple of direct mentions, couple of partial match, couple closely related and loads of broadly related terms. Don't just think about the term itself as being the biggest indicator, make sure you are covering the topic in full and mentioning all of the key terms and phrases that might be associated with your target keyword(s).

    Look at the competition as well - look at the top ten results, how many times are they mentioning the keyword on average?

    I see you found your answer but I want to provide a few cents myself.

    When I write a 2k article, I include the main keyword I'm targeting in the title, URL, and once in the first paragraph and never put it again in the article. I use one or two similar keywords in the article with lower searches and comp but that's it.

    I know it's lower density than most gurus recommend, but it's golden for me because I'm able to hit first page within hours for the similar keywords and I'm able to hit first page 70% of the time without any links for the main keyword.

    Sometimes, less optimization is the right optimization, as if you try to optimize, you might over optimize.
