    Hello, I do this for long time, but I still do not know if it is good idea or not. If your key phrase is for example "blue cars" would it be good on your blog to have titles of articles like "Buying blue cars" "Selling blue cars" "Repairing blue cars" etc? I mean every or almost every article named like this. Is it good for seo, bad for seo, does it even matter, what do you think?

    I think that's going to depend on how many articles you have on the site. If you've only got 5-6 articles then it could look fine. If you have 50 articles and they all contain the key phrase then I think it's going to look spammy to Google.

    I think it is better to have different title that is related to your key phrase and have the key phrase or keyword on each different article body..

    but be show all the article is unique in this case it appears to be original and not spammy

    small sites its fine but if you are building larger sites than you have to go with lsi. Like funky said, 5-6 are fine with keyword

    This is definitely something that google has caught onto awhile ago. I'd stay far away from it. We've been doing that since the early 2000's. Literally 100k page sites with the same blue widgets in each link lol. I've actually seen some vids of Matt C talking about this exact thing.

    I'd put that one to bed with blog and ping, or at least write a few posts about black widgets, or some shit..

    Just the fact that you are asking, kind of leads me to believe that you don't have a good site structure setup with hierarchy etc and that you have either picked a domain name that is too specific aka bluewidget.com instead of widgets.com.

    Just my opinion on it.

    If you use the same keyword over and over again Google will think that you are trying to spam to rank for that keyword.

    I would use it a few times but come up with similar sounding titles like blue automobiles, blue autos, blue vehicles, etc that way at least they keyword density for cars won't be as high.
