On a 500 word article, this will get you about 2 percent keyword density which is a great target option.

4. Expertise:

Getting people to see your articles is a great way to earn trust and authority in your niche. Always be prepared to offer tips and advice on things that you can do to go above and beyond the basics. Provide good information that will help them reach their goals. The more that you offer the more people will begin to trust the authority you are establishing in your niche.

5. Simplicity:

People tend to over complicate things. Keeping it simple, and to the point are what most people are searching for when it comes to information. People will appreciate a well written article that is quick and to the point. This should be your number one priority when writing articles for SEO purposes.
