Keyword stuffing is a search egnine technique called as spamdexing in which keywords are loaded into a web page's meta tags to gain an unfair rank advantage in search engines.

Keyword stuffing means you just adding keywords in a content without providing any meaning to that content. Make sure you write content which is useful to user and they can take some benefits or buy from you instead of writing. Keyword stuffing basically means grey hat SEO.

Keyword stuffing is a black hat technique to improve ranking in Google. In this technique webmasters add the keywords many times in their content in order to rank higher. It is a bad practice, it violates the Google guidelines. If Google found your web page then, it may got penalized. Try to put keywords volume 2 to 3.5 percent.

"Keyword stuffing" refers to the practice of loading a webpage with keywords or numbers in an attempt to manipulate a site's ranking in Google search results. Often these keywords appear in a list or group, or out of context (not as natural prose). Filling pages with keywords or numbers results in a negative user experience, and can harm your site's ranking. Focus on creating useful, information-rich content that uses keywords appropriately and in context.

Types of visible keyword stuffing include:

  • Unnecessarily repeating words or phrases
  • Adding words that are out of context
  • Inserting blocks of the same keyword
  • Using keywords that are not relevant to the topic of the page

A keyword stuffing example would be a page that is trying to rank for the term “best laptop bag” and using the following copy:

“If you’re looking for the best laptop bag, look no further. Our brand offers the best laptop bag that you could want for business or pleasure. With padding in our liners and a special pocket for your charger, this is the best laptop bag for travel or school.” In this example, the copy goes overboard with the use of the keyword. The term is used more than the suggested amount of times to match SEO best practices for keyword density.
