Keyword stuffing is known as an unethical search engine optimization technique that involves adding an excessive amount of keywords into the HTML or tags of a webpage to bring more traffic to a website. While considered obsolete and outdated, there are still websites that attempt to use this technique and end up being blacklisted or banned from search engines. Search engines are now well equipped to deal with that sort of unethical SEO technique. For example, Google, one of the main search engines, has parameters that check for keyword stuffing hidden away from the eyes of the casual website viewer.

    In a webpage keywords density is 2%. This is the best for seo. That meant in a 100 words article you can use a keywords two times.

    I suppose after the penguin update keyword stuffing can also refer to a bad link profile where all your backlink anchor text contains stuffed keywords. *just my opinion*

    Keyword stuffing refers to the practice of loading a webpage with keywords or numbers in an attempt to manipulate a site's ranking in Google search results. Often these keywords appear in a list or group, or out of context.

    yes , “keyword stuffing” has been around since the early days of SEO. It’s used to describe a shady technique website owners adopt in order to manipulate their site’s search ranking for a particular keyword, or set of keywords. If you have been to a website that displays a list of words or phrases that have little or no relevance to the content on the website, then it is likely that website is keyword stuffing.

    gives these examples of keyword stuffing:

    1.Lists of phone numbers without substantial added value
    2.Blocks of text listing cities and states a webpage is trying to rank for
    3.Repeating the same words or phrases so often that it sounds unnatural
