What is keyword density?
Keyword density is defined as the percentage of the total number of times the main target keyword(s) appears on the web page compared to the total number of words on the web page.
Keyword density (%) = (total number of times the main target keyword(s) appears on the web page / total number of words on the web page) * 100

    The formula is - (Nkr * Nwp / Tkn) * 100,
    Where,
    NKR = how many times you repeated a specific keyword
    Nwp= Nwp is the number of words in the phrase
    Tkn = the total words in the analyzed text

    Keyword density is the "A word, keyword or a phase, who many time is used or repeated on a web page". The density is the 2-3% of the total content of the webpage. or a word repeat after at-least 100 words.

    Keyword density is important because search engines use this information to categorize a site's theme, and to determine which terms the site is relevant to. The perfect keyword density will help achieve higher search engine positions. Keyword density needs to be balanced correctly (too low and you will not get the optimum benefit, too high and your page might get flagged for “keyword spamming”).


    This tool will analyze your chosen URL and return a table of keyword density values for one-, two-, or three-word key terms. In an attempt to mimic the function of search engine spiders, it will filter out common stop words (since these will probably be ignored by search engines). It will avoid filtering out stop words in the middle of a term, however (for example: “designing with CSS” would go through, even though “with” is a stop word).

    Hello Friends,

    The true definition of keyword density is the ratio of the word that is being searched for, ie the keyword, against the total number of words appearing on a given web page. If your keyword occurs only once or twice in a page of 500 or more words, obviously it has a lower keyword density than a keyword that would occur six or seven times in a page of similar length.

    Thanks

    Keyword Density just means what percentage of your content consists of your target keywords. Search engines use to await on the body of a web page as one of the above factors if determining the search engine rankings of a page. It is less important in SEO terms today, but it's still relevant to your website or article.

    Keyword Density is the percentage of occurrence of your keywords to the text in the rest of your webpage. it has to be 2-3% for best practice.
