    I have a website with some related-secondary keywords I'm trying to rank for.

    The problem is, they are so awkwardly worded, for instance: Lawn mower debris stick grass (not related at all to my niche but you get the point)

    Some of these jumbled search terms are lowish comp and 6-8000 volume/month.

    I managed to squeeze it in the title and H1 tags, but I want to get my keyword density up a bit.

    What if I were to write in white so that the text matches the background, just some sentences with the keywords hidden on the page 2-3 times?

    I'm not saying to just stuff they keyword on there 250 times like they did back in the day, I'm saying if i wrote good unique content, but since the keyword is awkward for readers i just hid it in white

    It's a 2 months old fresh domain, the main keyword I'm trying to rank for is 55 difficulty, I'm at 35 on google right now, but I'm trying to pick up some easier keywords while my main keyword is moving up(the easier keywords are the jumbled ones) and i haven't published the articles containing them yet

    Don't do that. You don't need the exact keyword more than once or twice if it's awkward. You can mention "debris" and "stick grass" and "lawn mower" all separately close to each other and Google will understand.

    As @Jared255 said, you dont need it more than a couple of times if at all - if the phrase doesnt make sense Google will likely know that as well. Just mention parts of it, variations etc as you would normally mention the actual phrase. That will be enough - If you need inspiration look at the top ten sites currently ranking and you will get the idea.

    That's true. None of the first 5 sites that come for that keyword has that exact keyword on their pages.

    Ensure your articles are all within the similar niche topics, people don't want to go to a lawnmower website to read about knitting patterns or diet plans.

    If you're still thinking of trying to hide keywords in white on white, don't cry if the site gets busted.
