    Of-course Yes, it matters lot. A ideal article should have 2-3 % keyword density, more density causes for spamming.

    Yes I believe it does. But you DO NOT want to over do it. I think between 3%-5% keyword density is ideal. I use to get away with 6-8% but now with the new Google updates that is too high. I never go above 5% now.

    Keyword Density refers to percentage of keyword repeating in a web page.

    No doubt its keyword density matters, keeping an appropriate percent around 2-3 for your article is important. Over doing it is considered to be the keyword stuffing which is a black hat activity and considered to be a spam activity and can affect your site ranking later on after the Google Updates so keyword density does matter so choose and work with it wisely.

    What are you talking about "Spamming", SPAM is SPurious Ad Mail, its adverts for things via a medium that you never asked for, you get Forum SPAM, same principle but lives in the world of forums.

    Keywords, you can overdo keywords by having non-relevant words in your page.

    Yes keywords density really matters for example if you can write 500 words article the the keywords density is 2 to 4% with keywords variation and the formula to find keywords density is

    (Number to time main keywords use / keywords in content) x 100

    Thanks

    Off course keyword density matters, if you put too many keywords in your content of a page you will be counted in spammer.

    Yes definitely, keyword density a lot matters, you have to maintain keywords in 2-3% in your content.

    Yes definitely,The preferred keyword density rate varies from search engine to search engine. In general, it is recommended using a keyword density rate in the range of 1-3%. Too much keyword density can cause your site to be tagged as spam.

    Yes it does. Your actual keyword density should be 2% . Too much keyword density can lead you to unethical SEO etc.

    If we talk about in simple terms, keyword density counts in percentage and expressed as the ratio of no. of times keyword used to total no. of words in your content. It's appreciable to use it between 2% to 3%. Otherwise it could be considered as keyword stuffing by Google.

    Yes it matters but you have to represent it on natural way on your website so that it not looks spam to Google. Sometime Google penalize website for over optimizing the keyword. So be careful in it.
