    Search engines no longer use these tags, so they are of no value to you at all. This method is outdated and Google will not give as high of rankings to those using this.

    Keyword stuffing is a waste of time. If you're lucky, Google will just ignore all the rubbish on your page. If you're unlucky, it will treat you as a spammer and blacklist you.

    Important point: Google is in the business of finding the best results for what people are searching for. It is not in the business of helping webmasters to promote their sites (other than through its Adwords programme). Anything that stops it from finding the websites that will be best for the surfing public (like webmasters filling their pages, alt and title attributes, meta tags and everything else with hidden or repeated keywords) is going to be treated with the contempt it deserves.

    Trying to beat Google is a game that you won't win.

    Second this. Keyword stuffing is no longer work, and will put your website in risk if you over do it.

    Consider how often you read web pages stuffed with keywords.

    keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff
    keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff keyword stuff

    Did you read all the words above? If not then why would you expect someone else to read a page stuffed with multiple copies of the same keywords - and of course the search engines are looking to list the pages people want to read at the top of their results.

    Well explained. Yes repeating the same keywords is simply waste of time. Normally the density should not exceed the limit 0f 3-4%

    Are you suggesting a variant? eg. "restrained keyword stuffing"

    Wouldn't just writing your copy as it comes naturally be the best thing to do?
    Seems to me the "keywords" come from the copy, NOT the copy filling in space around "keywords".

    Anyone who counts or measures keyword density really hasn't understood how this game works.

    Google does not and has never had a part of its algorithm that looks at the frequency that a word or phrase appears in the text and how far above or below a mythical 'sweet spot' that is.

    The way to test if your keyword density is wrong is to read what you've written, and think about how it sounds. If it sounds like natural, flowing, well-written prose then you've got it right. If it sounds like a stuck record repeating the same words over and over then you're going to bore your readers to tears, and convince them that what you've written isn't worth reading. And no matter what effect it has on your position in the search results, there's absolutely no point in being #1 if people take one look at your site and then leave so fast the door smacks their bum on the way out.

    "Keyword stuffing" refers to the practice of loading a webpage with keywords in an attempt to manipulate a site's ranking in Google's search results. Filling pages with keywords results in a negative user experience, and can harm your site's ranking. Focus on creating useful, information-rich content that uses keywords appropriately and in context.

    Keyword stuffing occurs when a web page is loaded with keywords in the meta tags or in content. The repetition of words in meta tags may explain why many search engines no longer use these tags.
    Anyway on days Keyword stuffing is considered to be an unethical search engine optimization (SEO) technique. Keyword stuffing had been used in the past to obtain maximum search engine ranking and visibility for particular phrases. This method is completely outdated and adds no value to rankings today. In particular, Google no longer gives good rankings to pages employing this technique.
