Keyword stuffing could be ruining your blog and you may not even know it. Keyword stuffing is a term most often used when you are referring to the amount of keywords that you are using in a post or article. This is also known as keyword spamming and is something that you should try and avoid at all cost.

Cramming keywords into your content should be listed as something taht you should not do unless you just don’t want traffic or want to be known as the spammer of all spams.

Your site is often scoured by popular search engines like Google and Yahoo. They often look at your content and collect statistics on it. If they see that you have an unusually high amount of keywords or key phrases, your site could suffer from a lower rank or even be ignored for doing this.

Stuffing keywords could also draw your readers elsewhere. No one likes to go to a site that is constantly repeating themselves over and over with the same words, this can become confusing and they might lose interest. This is why it is important to try and keep your keyword density to approximately 3%-5%.

The best way to keep readers is to write relatively short, interesting and discoverable content for your site or blog.
