    I'm just editing a website that has surfaced out of the sandbox and I'm very cautious now to remove the 'decorative text' and all that crap from posts. The posts were also keyword stuffed quite embarrassingly in some places in hindsight.

    This is especially since I've already had an adsense ban so really don't want to have my articles look like they've been deliberately optimized because even if that stuff wasn't strictly against the rules it might raise a flag to them to say 'yup we've got an optimizer here better look deeper for more dirt'.

    I'm trying to make things look as natural as I can on the front end and only putting the kw in h1, h2, h3 when it's appropriate.

    I'm skeptical as to how much that stuff did anyhow and especially now since the updates. Better to just plow it on the backend where noone is looking.

    Hi mate,

    According to my experience, keep the keyword density bellow 1% or around 1% - 1,1 ; 1,2 at the most. Also include your keyword in title. And most important part is your article/blog post should be unique. For example my blog post(which is betting tip) is on page one just using above for the "man utd - chelsea betting tip" and 2 million competition,without any back links. Hope that helps

    Cheers

    Petko

    2 or 3 months for me. Also two came out at the same time which indicates maybe it was due to them tweaking the algo rather than specific time having passed.

    How old is your domain?
    Keeping keyword density at 1% is way too low. I would aim for 4%.
    What is the objective of your website? Can you toss it and make a new one?

    Keyword density as a number figure doesn't matter anymore IMO. If it makes sense to put the kw there, then do so, but if it's a site about blue widgets, you don't want to be naming your category, tags, etc blue widgets as well. For posts, I have the kw twice at least (for a ~500 word article), 3 if it's going to something other than the money site.
