When I read the expert opinion I saw that generally they offer 2-3% keywords density.
More then this will make the bad effect for the website.

3-4% keyword density is good for 400-500 words

Keyword density should be 2-4%. Dont let your density exceed this limit.

Agreed .

One of my trainer told me to put keywords is following manners(2-4% density)


One keyword in Title

One or two in the First Para

One in middle

One or 2 in Last paragraph.


It will be effective for both seo and Visitors too

As this is an old topic brought back to life, Google's Panda updates now punish sites that use duplicate content, poorly worded and ungrammatical content, and excessive keyword use.

A good rule of thumb in the post-Panda world is to use informative content on your site. You, of course, also want to keep your keyword density low (like the percentages mentioned here in this thread repeatedly...I've seen some say no more than 5%) so you avoid being seen as spamming the system.

The use of keyword should be restricted in an article. So its to follow guidelines before writing article.

Keyword density should be around 2 to 3 percent in an article.

To add to my early post, perhaps the answer is if you're even counting your keywords with today's advanced search engine algorithms, then you've probably used too much.

To summarize, provide informative content and don't just stuff keywords onto your page!
