    Proper keyword density isn't going to get you a bonus with Google, but keyword stuffing along with other no-nos like using the same anchor text repeatedly and other over-optimization will get your pages penalized. They want to see you have the keyword of course to rank for it. I typically use the phrase I want in the title, an h tag and two or three times in a 500 word paragraph. I don't even look at density but I imagine its under 1.5% all the time and under 1% most of the time.

    Why are you posting articles here? This isn't Warrior Forum.

    Is it against the rules? Do we have some grudge or opposition towards the warrior forum? :rolleyes:

    I don't really care if people post articles here... that doesn't turn BHW into Warrior Forum for a bunch of different reasons.

    But if you post an article, please leave more than a few words. Maybe give us an idea of what you actually go out of the article. Seems like you could just be fluffing your post count. And potential thanks if the article is good.
