    Excessive usage of keywords is known as keyword stuffing.


    Optimal usage is 4-5% of main keywords depends on your content. And make use of Stemming Keywords.

    When you use too much keyword in you content and visitor can not found any authentic information except your keyword that is called keyword stuffing. This thing disturbs the readers and negatively affects your site. It is illegal method of black hat SEO and you should avoid using it.

    Keyword stuffing is being given more emphasis in today's articles than it really deserves. Giving high quality information in an appealing manner is going down the drain.

    This is very dated advice. Google's search intelligence has gotten much better with understanding synonyms and even words that are related but not equivalent. While you should not skip your keywords entirely, write for humans, not for search engine robots. If your article is well written about its topic, the search engines will figure it out. More important, a well-written piece will attract more natural links which will be much better for your ranking in the SERPs than how many times your keyword appears on the page.

    Keyword stuffing is considered to be a black hat technique of SEO, if any such webmaster seems to be repeating keywords more than desired percentage may look the whole content unnatural for the readers. This technique though seems to be worked at early days but now search engines are smart enough to find any such activity and they make sure to penalize such webmasters.

    Hello friend very informative topic...Typically, these lists or paragraphs of keywords, often randomly repeated. Check carefully, because the word can often be in the form of hidden text, or may be hidden title tags or alt attributes.

    Thanks for..

    Now that is the right question.

    Sometimes you simply forget to insert proper keywords in a page content. For example
    "Somecity zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily."
    But people usually search "somecity zoo hours".
    So actually you need to stuff the word "hours" in your text somehow, right?

    It is considered as black hat SEO. Sometimes to rank keyword high people start stuffing keywords everywhere in content , blogs etc. there is a way to use keywords in content in proper way. In 500 words content its good to use primary keyword 4 to 5 times bt if you are stuffing it to 9 - 10 times then instead of ranking high there may be chance of going down. So do ethical way of seo

    Keyword stuffing is an unethical search engine optimization or SEO technique. This technique includes overloading a web page (meta tags or content) with keywords. Today this SEO technique is completely outdated.

    Keyword stuffing is just changing like everything else, becoming more sophisticated.
    Now it's about rewrintig text with SEO in mind, but keeping it readable.
    I think keyword stuffing will only die with search engines.

    In recent google updates. The google told that they are going to penalize those website which are doing keywords stuffing for getting search engine ranking benefit. The owner of the website add targeted keyword again and again in the low quality content to fool the google crawler. They think they will get top rank by doing this. But now google updated their crawling system and the website will get penalize if the crawler find such stuffing on any website.

    It is a unethical technology. Most of the people want to fast result. They can get fast result by using Black hat SEO but all these technologies give short-term result so that we have to avoid these technologies.

    Some time we use over cunt keywords in the content or bottom or on the side panel of the website. This is called keywords stuffing.
