    In a 100 word "article" with 8% max keyword density which one ranks you better?

    1.Having 1-2 keywords in tag and repeating them in the article so they get the 8%?

    2.Having 3-5 keywords in tag and distributing inside the article the 8% between those 3-5 keywords?

    3.Having 8 keywords in tag and writing each once in the article?

    4.Having 20 keywords or more in tag and writing only 3-5 of keywords inside the article distributing the 8%.

    5.Having 20 or more in tag and writing each once(8 out of 20 or more keywords)?

    If you chose the ones that have many different keywords you can cover more different searches but if you chose only 1-2 and repeat them you are covering less searches but that keywords become more powerful ,right?

    Also if i have 20 or more keywords in tags and write only 1-8 in the article,the rest 12-19 unused keywords would do any good for ranking?

    Wrong.

    Do more research on what LSI and related keywords mean. Think about the meaning of a keyword, the other words that mean the same thing, and phrases that also relate to its topic. Then think of those related terms like bricks in a pyramid that will raise up the top keyword to the top of the pyramid. Google doesn't just analyse the word, they try to understand its meaning, and then also looks to see if the source material is an authority on the subject matter. Thus seeking out related terms.

    You may or may not rank for those other terms, if you optimized properly, you won't, but it will indeed have a significant impact on your primiary keyword term focus of the page.

    Clear as mud? :)

    Speak clearly ;p
    So you are saying that it is good to put words of similar meaning because they support eachother because its the same subject and in googles eyes thats a good thing.right or wrong?

    Google changed in April.

    Google sucks at that now... since the MayDay update its all broken... what ranks best for "buy pink socks" ... explicit anal sex copy... try it... even with safe search set to strict... they can't even filter bad words at the moment let alone determine search intent.

    Right now the Google algorithm consists of 4 factors.

    1. Absurd Keyword Density... 50-300 keyword matchs on the page
    2. dmoz and yahoo directory links
    3. Decent Page Rank
    4. Keywords in domain or in URL.. domain is better if you care about #1 on page 1

    In basic terms, right.

    There are a lot more on the subject if you just google 'LSI keywords'
