    Hey there everyone!

    I have a website which runs WordPress and I have recently installed a SEO plugin, so whenever I'm writing a post, it analyzes its structure and gives me a feedback on what's wrong and what's right. Now, there are things like "Your keyword appears 0.60% times, it is very bad" or something like that. What I'm wondering is this - do I really need to use my keyword a lot or the other content matters?

    I'm kinda confused...I haven't done any SEO until today, and still I was getting 10-15 visitors from Google daily, even if my website is only a month old. Plus, I didn't care about those "rules", so sometimes there was no keyword mentioned in the post.

    What should I do now? Should I follow those advices by SEO plugin or?
    Thanks!

    I do not even look at this stuff anymore, all posts under 6% keyword usage and it looks abnormal I believe. I just post and get cool results.

    I would go with the suggestions. This way your on site seo becomes a forced habit. Even if your not going to post on a wordpress blog you will know how to structure your posts. Your goal is to rank well in the search engine so I would advise that you stay with in the guide lines. If you don't follow the suggestions then you'll end up creating a bad habit and will slowly fall in the rankings.

    If you don't want to over optimise the keyword you could use associated words through a tool like LSI keywords I find that the keyword (s) should come into the content naturally anyway

    I always try to keep it under 1%, I think the % that the plugin is advising is years old

    So I guess I'll just keep writing the content normally and it will be fine...we'll see.
