    Keyword density mean a proportional measurement of keywords embedded in a page's content. High keyword density focuses the page's subject in a way that Google's spider understands. The spider can interpret too high a density as spam, which results in a lower PageRank or elimination from the index. Most optimization specialists recommend a density between 5 and 15 percent.

    Keyword density is the ratio of the word that is being searched for (the keyword) against the total number of words appearing on your web page. If your keyword occurs only (say) once in a page of one thousand words, it has a lower keyword density than a keyword that occurs (say) four times in a page of similar length.If a particular keyword has a higher density on your web page, then the likelihood of your page obtaining a better search engine ranking increases.

    keyword density is the weight of your keyword use in the article or it seems how many times you repeat in the entire body:)

    Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on a web page compared to the total number of words on the page. The perfect keyword density will help achieve higher search engine positions. Consider the optimum keyword density to be 2 to 5 percent. Using high density of keyword could be considered as spam.
