SEO Keyword Density

What is Keyword Density?

Keyword density is the number of times a keyword is used on a webpage or blog post. This is important to consider when creating a website, webpage or blog post so that your efforts can be properly found by search engines and the readers or customers of your site.


How often should keywords be used on a page or post to maximize SEO?

Use keywords once in the…

  • Title
  • Description Tag
  • Heading
  • URL
  • Bold
  • italic
  • high on the page


Try to hit 5-20% for keyword density, but be careful not to overdo it, as the content will be affected by the readers of your page.

Sounds too simple? Well, writing with SEO and keyword density in mind is an important tool for content providers, writers, and bloggers who want to increase their site visits and reader or fan base.


How to Use Keywords on Published Pages

What if you already have pages or sites built and need to search engine optimize them for keywords?

One way is to use plugins to help with keywords. Some are free and others are paid. However, do some research on a good plugin that does it all or you may have problems with using multiple plugins and having them interfering with each other.

And finally, there is the good old fashioned way of combing through sites and pages already built and manually adjusting them for keyword density. If that isn’t your cup of tea, you can always hire someone.
