    I normally just try to get my keyword in the title, first sentence of first paragraph, couple of times in body and last sentence of last paragraph.

    I have also read 1 to 4 percent, 16% may be considered keyword stuffing and google could penalize for it. I would stay below 7% at the high end.

    I keep my KW density between 3% and 6%.

    I wouldn't suggest going over %6, on-page SEO doesn't, well really effect too much towards the overal ranking of the website, obviously it helps, but stuffing a load of keywords into a article isn't going to make you jump 100 spots. :)

    Let me explain what else i am doing i had a website ranked in top 3 pages for almost all of my keywords i wanted to rank for it sabout 80 keywords or so. I want to be #1 for my main keyword as does everyone so i decided to add more pages to the existing website. So i am creating an additional 80 pages each new page would be optimized for 1 keyword.

    The links are going to be added in a pyramid type structure with 3 levels
    main level<main keyword<long tailed keywords

    so what i did was create one page of content and i spun it over and over again at around 40-50% unique content. I then optimise each page for the specific keyword i want. I finished about 10 pages so far and i checked theire keyword density and some keywords have up to 20% density. I am guessing i will have to change it to make it 5-8% as suggested is that correct?

    I wouldn't suggest a 20% density, but really, it's down to you.

    the 20% density is for a 2 word phrase and i want to go for a 3 word phrase
    the 3 word phrase is at 10%

    also i just checked a nother keyword density tool for the same page and the highest density i get is around 14% any one have an accurate density tool?

    I think you can still download Dupefree Pro, you have to opt in for it. Some of the options on it do not work, they are in the process of a new release. Just google it easy to find.

    You can also use it to check if your article is unique on google, the yahoo and msn functions are broke. Can also compare two articles, and check Kw density.

    Keep in the title, keep in the first para, keep some in open para and use some later words and sure to use keywords in concluding para.

    Above everything you are writing for human - so ensure your readability is good and not turns the reader away. Bounce rate is sth I am sure G will be taking into account.

    Anything more than 4 percent defininetely looks like keyword stuff -

    Look for long term strategy friends !!

    That will make it look like write it by a robot.
    If you do a 300 keys article that will be 60 of 300 for the same keyword, lol.

    Try using Trafic Travis to check keyword density... works pretty well and its available here on the forum if you search for it.

    I'm in agreement with those who say to stick around the 6% number...
