You should avoid copying & pasting of the content from others’ website to your own. In such cases, your website will never get visibility & ranking.

There is one very important aspect which you should keep in mind while optimizing content. It is “Keyword Density”. This term indicates how many times your keyword appears in the whole content. It is recommended that it should remain 2% to 4%. This means that you should use a keyword 2 to 3 times in a 100 word’s content. What happen if I use it more than the recommendation?
