    Yes, keyword density still matters, specially with recent algorithm updates by Google to display quality posts first.

    Imagine the shape of a graph of y=-x^2 if you are good at maths. If you overuse your keyword it will eventually go past the top point and go downwards. If you don't use enough you will not reach the top.

    The ideal keyword density for 2015 is, of course, 9.144%.
    I thought everyone knew that?

    In all seriousness hola1, I estimate around 8-9%. To increase your ranking without their penguin algorithm noticing rearrange the keyword then you'll hit #1 faster.. Ie 'making money online', 'money making online', 'online money making'..
    Definitely the best 2015 ranking method!

    depends if your site is in the payday algo or the regular algo, 2 different sets of numbers at least to deal with.

    -Title your pages properly i.e. <title> </title>

    -Use LSI variations in headings.

    -Keyword rich meta for all media (definitely use media)

    -Write lots of content naturally, as you would for a magazine article (informative, user engaging, grammatically correct, when necessary citing references, when necessary linking to other sources).

    You'll have a perfectly optimized page every single time.

    It really is that simple. Stop over-complicating it.

    **** This single most important piece of information google will use to determine what queries to show your page for, is the title of the page.

    You must be joking right? 8-9% will definitely trigger the over-optimization filter.

    Not only that, his audience would have a headache after reading an article with an 8-9% keyword density. Just look at how annoying an 8.9% keyword density paragraph would be:

    I don't think Keyword density matters a lot. From a readers point of view the article has to sound natural and we can always use LSI keywords. I have seen MOZ and Matt Cutts videos where they have explained about it.

    He is obviously joking as 8-9% is nowhere near over optimization. The clear winner is 99.9% keyword density is what you need. If you go 100% then you over optimized. The other .1% is up in the air. Add your keyword 500 times, index that puppy and you should be ranking within 4 hours tops.

    The best way to figure that out would be to check the top ten results for your keyword and compare their densities with yours.

    You can rank with keyword density of 1% and you can also rank with keyword density of 30% , if you know what you are doing.

    You are right on the money. I've done keyword-stuffing tests before and the tests proved that keyword stuffing or high keyword density doesn't make ranking higher more difficult or easier.
