Keyword density - a parameter that plays an important role in determining the relevance, that is, matching a search query page. Defined as the ratio of the specified keywords (phrases) to the total number of indexed words in the document and expressed in percentage. Simply put, the density - a measure of how often a keyword appears on this page.

Keyword density refers to how often a keyword appears on a single web page relative to the amount of overall content.

Keyword density should be about 3-5%. Keyword "stuffing," or inserting an abundant amount of keywords into an article, is considered bad practice.

It is the ratio of a keyword or key phrase to the total number of words on that page. It is one of the most critical aspects of successful search engine optimization. To improve your search engine ranking potential, your keyword density must be just right. To calculate your keyword density, divide the total number of words on your page by the number of times your primary keyword or key phrase appears.

Keyword density is critical when outlining the keyword portion of your search engine optimization strategy.

In general, in the range of 2-4% keyword density ration is recommended.

Number of times your keyword present in your web content. which is calculated by the following formula

Keyword density=(No of Keywords/Total No Words)/100

Good keyword density should be around 5 % to 7 %.

Do me a favor hit the cached button next to your search results to see if your keywords matter, you will notice that most top ranked sites for your results have the keywords in there on page or in the links.
How could Google exclude search results that have the keyword in there often? but no links? Not even remotely close to true.

Keyword density is simply defined as the amount of times a keyword appears in a particular article.

Just make sure you maintain a stable keyword density, so you will not be banned by the search engines.
