    2% is the best density in words you can have, I recommend to install Yoas seo... to help you more with that.

    Forget about trying to hit a keyword density %, its an outdated concept.

    The keyword density is just a rule you should follow to make sure that your content doesn't stray too far from the main topic/keyword/product. People usually attain 0.4-0.5% but you should aim for about 2%. Yoast SEO is great if you're on Wordpress.

    Just check my sites for keyword density. It's from 1% - %5.
    I've never put keywords in purposely; just naturally get into the articles.

    Totally outdated criteria. Think UI/UX, architecture (siloing), improvals internal link's juice methods, and multiples semantic's tips for ranking. Everything that you need to do is to be relevant to google's algorithm.

    It's a tedious work but awesome in long-term.

    I never check my kwd density tbh. As long as the article is unique, natural writing and human readable, then it's fine by me.

    You just try to avoid writing content for keyword based. It's just a rule to keep mind while writing content. The content should be unique, informative, giving exact information for people those who are searching and especially quality.
    If you want to increase the rank on the search engine, kindly concentrate and spend more time to find the good information for the topic and then can get good traffic and convert from another site, eventually will get rank top soon naturally and can stand for long.

    Keyword density is the % of times a keyword appears on a web page. Many SEO experts consider the optimum keyword density to be 1 to 3 percent.

    At starting people are used more keywords.So,Google came with an update for keyword usage or density.

    Based on your article you can use keywords,by using formulae and KW research tools.

    Keywords can also be used as an anchor text by giving backlink to it.

    Don't think about density, all your keywords should seem natural. In some niches 1 keyword mention per post will be enough, but in another niches you can paste more than 10 keywords on your page to reach the top.

    I never check keyword density or even consider it, and tend to subscribe to the idea that this has become a generally outdated metric. Definitely use your keywords but don't spam them either.

    Keep your content natural, write for users not search engines, and use synonyms of your keywords. That is what I stick to and it has worked for me. Aim for high quality always.
