    Keyword density is the ratio (or percentage) of the number of times your keyword appears on the page of your article, versus the number of words on the page.

    Keyword density refers to the number of times a keyword appears on a given webpage or within a piece of content as a ratio or percentage of the overall word count. This is also sometimes referred to askeyword frequency, or the frequency with which a specific keyword appears on a webpage.

    Keyword density is the percentage of times keyword is used in your article. There is a limit of the keywords which is 2 to 3% in your article. Make sure you follow that limit otherwise your article will be looks keyword stuffed and not fetch by the search engines for ranking.

    The ratio tells how much the keywords repeated in a webpage. The keyword density ration lies between 2% to 5%

    Keyword density should not be more than 1.5 % on a webpage for a quality content. Webpage having less than 2% is reckoned a Quality content. Search Engines now give more importance to quality content.

    Keyword density is only used in content analysis semantics today. Years ago webpages were about keyword stuffing -- today this is just bad SEO.
    You should be concerned with site wide topical semantics if you want to be successful in organic SEO and viewer retention rates -- that is what is used today in search ranking algorithms.

    Stop regurgitating this superstitious nonsense. It is just a waste of time. There are no known (empirical) algorithmic percentages -- the numbers are assumptions and in general: fallacies.
