Why do we need to change 

Google believe that that the keyword(s) that appear most in the content of a page is a relevancy signal and rewards these pages with higher rankings. The keywords that searchers type into Google should be the most frequently used words on that particular page of your site, if so your page will increase in the Google rankings.

What do we need to do

It sounds very basic, but you count the number of times your target keyword(s) based on your Google Keyword Planner search are used and increase the percentage if necessary by inserting more of them here and there. Remember it still has to be easily readable or the searcher will leave the page. Warning: Overly stuffing the page full of keywords may attract a Google penalty or lowering in the search results (see: Keyword Density).

In order to count the keywords click on and do the following. keyword frequency 1

The following page will then come up.


In this page I was talking about the keywords Google looks for in the tags on your hotel page so this content had an appropriate keyword frequency. Also Google knows that words like the, and, of, is etc will be more frequently mentioned on a page and will ignore them in determining keyword frequency. Write your page content naturally first, check the page as per above and then go back and increase the density of the keywords you have not used enough.
