Question: What amount of keywords used then be concidered stuffing?
Answer: About 5-7% is a good target for keyword density – but remember that it’s not just the RAW density it’s also a) whether the keywords are in the RIGHT positions, TITLE tag, H1, IMAGE AL tag, etc., and b) whether the keywords are occurring in well written NATURAL syntax.
So as I teach in our course on SEO, you want to have decent keyword density, IN the RIGHT places in terms of HTML tag structure, and in GOOD natural syntax…
KEYWORD STUFFING would be a) overdoing it in terms of raw density, or b) putting them in comma, comma, comma phrases… I.e., not using natural syntax. Google’s PANDA update was particularly tough on low quality websites that did NOT use natural syntax.
