    Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or keyword phrase is found in your page content amidst all the other content. For example, if you have a Web page with exactly 100 words on it, including all headlines, captions, alt text, and advertising, and you have a keyword phrase that is on the page 3 times, your keyword density is 3%:

    Keyword density is the ratio of keywords you are using in your content of total words. According to google it should be 2-3%. But now a days using 2-3 keywords in whole content is enough.

    I agree with this definition but these days more than keyword density search engines are looking for the web pages with content that could capticatve the audience and make them recurring subscribers to their website.

    Keyword density tells you how often a search term appears in a text in relation to the total number of words on the page but reminder a high keyword density is a good indicator of search engine spam.

    In Science density is defined as mass divided by volume. If there are four items (of same weight) in box 1 and ten items in box 2, obviously box 2 density will be high. So same way keyword density means amount of keywords present in a web page should have proper ratio when compared to the whole content. We should not include so many times the same keyword, it is not good and we should balance it.

    Keyword density means how many times the keyword is repeated in an article, In old days people used to trick the search engines by stuffing keywords, so the articles which have high density are not advised by search engine optimization experts. It is advised to keep the keyword density between 2 to 3 percent. You can use several online available free tools to check the keyword density of articles and in wordpress you can also use free plugins of seo, which can tell you about keyword density of an article. In modern times it is advised to keep the keyword density low, and make the article more beautiful, informative and attractive with related long tail keywords.

    Keywords Density shows the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on a webpage compared to the number of words used on the webpage. The keyword density can be used to determine whether a web page is relevant to a specified keyword or keyword phrase. It is advised to keep the keyword density between 2 to 3 percent. Keywords make your content more precious and more informative.

    Keyword Density = Number of Keywords/Total number of Word*100
