    Keyword frequency is also known as Keyword Stuffing. It is a Black Hat SEO technique which is used to cheat the search engines by including the targetted keywords more in the content.

    To add to diakaads comment above, yes - when over used it can be keyword stuffing but it simply refers to how frequently a keyword is mentioned on a page. Usually, you'll see "keyword frequency" mentioned in some SEO tools...the way you use this metric is to make sure that the primary keyword phrase that you're after on a page is mentioned at least once. In general, Google has a much better understanding of natural language, so repeating the word tons of times does not help so much for optimization...what I would suggest instead is to include relevant modifiers and also synonymous and closely related terms on the page instead... hope this helps

    Keyword frequency is the number of times a keyword or phrase appears on a single Web page.

    This is the most misleading post in the thread, which has nothing to do with reality.

    Answer to the author: I believe elementary school skills are more than enough to answer this question. Put simply, the frequency is the number of occurrences - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frequency. Hence, in your case, it's the number of some keyword(s) on page. For example, if keyword "elementary school" is repeated 10 times on your page, and whole page has 200 keywords, the frequency is 5.

    Keyword frequency measures the occurrence of a particularly targeted keyword in a web page of a site.

    Hi

    Keyword Frequency is how often the keyword or keyword phrase appears on a webpage or on a piece of content to avoid the ability to appear as spam or to avoid being flagged in Google for 'keyword stuffing' on the webpage. Once a keyword or phrase appears, it is important to limit it. The optimal keyword frequency between online marketing professionals is debated regularly. In spite of Google SERPs (search engine results pages), natural readability is the most important component of SEO.

    Hope that helps.
