How to increase keyword density

I believe many of us on this post right now must have heard some where on the internet or probably through a friend "how increase in keyword density can impact positively in a post ranking" and you wants to learn so you can simply apply it when writing your blog articles. Well i will have to tell, you are in the right place to get that knowledge you are in search for. 

But before i forge ahead what is dime keyword density?


Keyword density definition

Keyword density refers to the amount of time targeted keywords appears or mentioned in a post which aims are not for manipulation, like what most bloggers and search engine crawlers considered as  "keyword sniffing". 

Keyword sniffing is bad for SEO and when someone talked about keyword sniffing then he/she is referring to how wrong a writer is mentioning a targeted keywords in his articles, for instance i want to prepare an article about "how to start a business" and my targeted keywords is "business" and i keep on mentioning business, business, business in every two to three paragraph, then that can be considered as keyword sniffing or manipulation which webmaster and even your audience (blog-readers) does not want.

Though it works then, when search engine crawlers considered it as a ranking factor but now instead of adding to your post ranking, it drastically reduces it's ranking that is why you will see some blog post written long but not ranking and a very short article ranks above it simply because search engine crawlers considered keyword sniffing as blackhat SEO practice, meaning you are trying to scale through their web with useless contents.
