The starting point of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is that it relies on the right use of keywords and content that describes the page’s content. Using Keywords accurately in your posts plays a huge role in helping your pages rank high in search results.

What are SEO Keywords?

SEO keywords are the keywords you use in your content that help make your article searchable via search engines for those keywords. When you use the  keywords more than one time in your article (keyword density) and when the the google bot crawls your page, it determines how useful the page is for users and ranks the page in search engines accordingly.

What is the ideal keyword density for an optimized page?

There are various views given by SEO consultants.  Though your keyword density should not be more than 5% of your article length. For ex, for a 200 word article, you should use your keyword 10 times.  However, it’s best to keep your keyword density between 3% – 5%.

Should I Stuff multiple keywords in my post?

Stuffing multiple SEO keywords in your post is a bad idea. You need to strike a balance between using keywords in your content and making the post reader friendly. Keyword stuffing will make your article look like spam and you will be penalized by Google which will ultimately show up in your ranking.

Selecting the right SEO keywords for your content and using them wisely is an essential & basic task that needs to be done continuously to ensure your pages are ranked high
