    Hi guys,

    from my searches I found that the keyword density should be among 2%-5% of the total words of the article. Can you confirm this?

    I know it's not as important as backlinks, but I think that a balanced KD could make the difference in low-competition niche. :p

    Cheers!

    do some analysis of the niche your working in, each niche has its own 'optimal' density for alt tags and content, 5 is a little high generally for natural content

    Not knowing the exact percentage but it depends on your content.How do you often used your keywords in your sentences.

    Actually, I would not even worry about density.

    Ensure the keyword is in the following places:

    Title
    Keyword
    Description

    H1 tag (could be title of blog post)
    In the 1st line of the 1st paragraph (make it bold)
    In the last line of the 1st paragraph (make it bold)
    Somewhere in the last paragraph of the page (make it bold)

    If you will do this, you will do alright.

    oh big G lol is a business like any other so Is not GOD .....and is not big
    try 3.6-3.67% this days this is it but check your competitors too. Title , description 2 times { don't make description phrases like your title tho}, keyword 1 time and separated if it is a phrase. 9-10 links with it, 2-3 alt image, in top of your text but not first ..don't use same as your title nowhere in your text ..and in the bottom 1-2
