    I've heard some pretty conflicting reports on this, some say low, some say high. What KW density do you utilize on your optimized pages?

    I go low (2-3%). I feel like its more natural, which is what I want.

    Yeah, that's what I'm feeling too. I look at it when it's 4-5 and I'm like damn... that looks pretty spammy, haha. Flows a lot better with 2-3.

    I personally do not think this is a decider. I made a lots of test with this density, and even if I made 5 articles with 10% plus keyword density, SOME of them rank pretty well. Some don't... The same with lower densities. I would say the key is to have high density in the FIRST FEW PARAGRAPHS of your page.

    Hope it helps you.
