Keyword density ratio
what %
Andrew Thomas

 9:38 am on Jul 1, 2004 (gmt 0)

I normally try to keep to around 12% keyword density. Although some sites i use are much higher, and I have good results from these.

Ive also read on the net different ideas 2 - 8 % from one website, 10 - 15% from another.

Any ideas on the ideal keyword density ratio, or is there no hard and fast rules?

From what I hear 1-3% keyword density is ideal.

Google search for "keyword density" on WebmasterWorld [google.com]

According to google, that question has been asked somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,540 times on this site.

It must be the holy grail of SEO knowlege.

I shoot for 2-10%; for what it's worth.

There no hard and fast rules. Keywords can be used as many times as you want. Only thing to keep in mind :together they must make sense to maintain the fluidity of the write-up.
