If you are a blogger, internet marketer, or a webmaster, then you probably know the importance of writing quality content to improve your readership as well as rankings in search engines. The phrase “content is king” has been heard by a content writer or a webmaster at least a hundred times by now, but that’s cent percent true.
If you want to rank your website on Google, then you need to keep in mind the vital on-page and off-page SEO techniques and not abuse them, or else Google slapping you with a penalty and trust me, it will hard to recover from it, and your site presumed dead. One of the most important (and most abused) on-page SEO tactics is Keyword Density.
What is Keyword Density, and how it is crucial for SEO?
In simple terms, keyword density is the percentage of the times a keyword appears within a context or a web page compared to the total number of words on that page. For on-page search engine optimization, keyword density is an essential thing for webmasters to take care of. It helps determine the relevancy of a particular page or post. Since the bloggers and webmasters have figured it out and abused it a lot, now it is considered as a minor ranking factor in the eyes of Google.
Experts recommend to have a keyword density anywhere between 1 to 3 percent depending on the word count, and it is always safe to disperse the keywords in the entire article and throw in some related keywords within the article to improve the semantic searches.
If you tried to stuff keywords in 2016, then you will be penalized by the Panda algorithm for keyword stuffing.
If you are on WordPress, then you have to exercise caution since WordPress outside the box is a terrible keyword stuffer in the form of headings, breadcrumbs, sidebar links, related posts, recent posts, etc. Suppose you publish an article with the target keyword “blue shirt” and name the title as the best blue shirt for summer. Wordpress automatically shows the word “blue shirt” six times without you, even including in your article.
Because of that reason, it is highly recommended to avoid using recent posts and related posts widget in the sidebar and use long titles to dilute the action of the keyword.
