How many keywords should one put into an article? I am writing a few articles and want to be sure I don't use the keyword(s) too much or two little.
What is the general rule for this?

My best advice is to simply write the articles so they are readable and that's it. Google loves "organic pages" and can spot keyword stuffing. Do this and it will rank well.

The way I do it is put your Keywords in the Title. Then put each keyword in the first part of the Article, then one time in the Middle. And lastly put your Keyword at the end.

This is a pretty good rule of thumb and has worked well for me !!

At most, 3 keywords in an article to prevent spamming. [:D]

hi there, i have been doing keyword optimization from last couple of years. As far what i have observed there is no such rule for keywords, you can set up ratio for that. It is Keyword density basically depends on how long your article is. For an article of 400 words (rather i would call it as a blog), two or three keywords are sufficient as "discrat" and "Jenie0109" said. You can have 1:4 ratio for the title, and 2:250 ratio for the article. You can try this.

Generally you can use two to three keywords in an article. Too much of keyword stuffing will lead to spamming.

I would just optimize for 2-4 main keywords or phrases in a single article. You should also include related words or supporting words, that contextually relate to the main keywords.

Depends upon the length of an article. 2 % of the total words in your article is a decent number of keywords in my view.

In an article of 400 words , it could be around 2-3 keywords. Too much of keywords could result into spamming.

Get The EXACT Keywords For Your Articles In Seconds!!
It's a long, long job to research your keywords, keyword phrases, LSi's etc and then write to content for your chosen search term that has the perfect keywords, and the perfect density of those keywords.

KeywordChief looks at the top 10 Google SERPS for your search term, compares them to each other, and then tells you the keywords that ALL the top 10 pages are using in their content, PLUS the density of those keywords.

In less than a minute you will know EXACTLY which keywords and their relevant density to include in your website copy so that it matches Google's exact keyword expectations.

According to me Keyword density is important. It depends upon the article and how much keyword you can stuff into it.
