5 to 8% is fine if the keyword if one word...like "widgets"
But if the keyword is "large blue widgets" or "large blue widgets in omaha", 5 to 8% is too much. It just isn't natural to have longer keyword phrases repeated too often.
I have had great success in Google with longer keywords only having a 2% density.
