What is Keyword Stuffing?
Keyword stuffing is a Black hat SEO technique which is used to get first-page ranking. Where the blogger repeats the targeted keyword in the article very much. It means over optimization of the keyword. And of course, the black hat means the wrong method in SEO.
This technique works from a little while but then google banned these type of websites.
Let’s take an example, If one is writing on ‘Affiliate Marketing’ then that blogger will continuously add Affiliate Marketing word in the article. I mean if he/she wrote a 40-word paragraph then he/she would add 10-15 word of Affiliate.
In Simple words, If you are being repeatedly used a keyword in an article to rank, then this does not make any difference to the word spamming.
This was the best black hat technique used in the past but these methods do not last long in front of Google’s expert algorithm.
Mistake Done by Blogger in Keyword Stuffing

- Another is a meta tag
Page URL and Page Title is also the place where the blogger does the mistake of Keyword spamming. Let’s understand in details now.
- According to White hat SEO, The standard percentage of keywords should be between 1-2% only, Not more than that. But Newbie bloggers make it to 5% to 10% to gain ranking fast. So guys, do not exceed more than 2% in the article. Now Google Wants Quality, not quantity.
- The meta tag is the one which is showed by the search engines in the search results. But Newbies put 2-3 keywords in the meta tag which is also known as Keyword spamming. Try to write within 140 to 160 words in the description and add only 1 main keyword in it.
- Don’t over optimize your Post title by adding 2-3 times keywords.
