      Keyword Stuffing is filling an article with keywords in an unnatural manner. It really is not effective anymore, and actually will hurt on any decent system like Google SERPs and the major ad networks.

      You do it intentionally be repeating what you think is the "money phrase" over and over. Something like this:

      "Big boobs are the best. Women with big boobs are better than women with not big boobs, because big boobs are the favorites of everyone especially people who like big boobs. If you don't like big boobs it is because you are just one of those big boobs who lies about what kind of boobs you like. Do you like big boobs or bigger boobs?"

      By the way, I was trying to stuff "because" how did I do smile

          I agree. Also, it is disappointing to find out your date had stuffed boobs.

        saw one like that, only it was about Jesus God Jesus, which was too sad.  Thing is, I was such a newb. The Hubber posted a question and there was only one answer. so i felt bad and answered the Q pointing out that the previous answer was messed up and made no sense. Now I found the Hub. I think the one who posted the question and the answer are the same as it was just a bunch of keywords over and over.

        Didn't know it was called keyword stuffing, but I am new.

      Here at HubPages, it'll get ya flagged.  Google doesn't like it, either.

      IE, I read your hubs.  You don't have any hubs that are stuffed.  Don't worry about it.

    The Wonder Blender Review.

    Boy, i love my wonder blender, out of all the blenders i have had I like my wonder blender the best. forget the awesome blender the wonder blender does everything you could ask for in a blender. The wonder blender comes in 2 color choices. My wonder blender is red. Your wonder blender could be blue.

    That used to work, now it doesnt..I wouldnt worry very much about it and I would discount any advice that suggests otherwise

    What is keyword stuffing?

    Keyword stuffing is when you try and stuff as many keywords as you can into an article. Some people believe keyword stuffing works to get the attention of search engines so when people do a search for a keyword they hope it comes up high (because of all the keyword stuffing).

    Others believe keyword stuffing only works if a certain percentage of the article have the keywords, that if the keywords go over the percentage that there could be a penalty applied for the keyword stuffing.

    And then there are those, such as myself, who find the practice of deliberately stuffing keywords into articles to be annoying as seeing the same keywords repeatedly stuffed into a sentence does not make for good reading.

    Keyword stuffing is pretty obvious, and can be easily picked up by Google, or anyone who is just reading a keyword stuffed article.

    This will negatively affect both SERPs and Conversions in my experience.

    Keyword stuffing is when you stuff something into a turkey you shouldn't....or it's the process of adding too many keywords to an article!

    The SEO rule is to not use more than 5% of key words in the entire article.  However, keywords should be in the URL and in the first 100 words of the paragraph.  You should always write foremost for your relevant intended audience.  What I have been noticing with the Google Alert is that an interesting topic will be top ranked but upon clicking on the link, the article is maybe only one paragraph as if to bait and switch the reader.  Google should prohibit website from having an interesting topic and then only listing a few sentences after they have gotten the reader on their web page.
