If on your website you mention the same keyword more than 5x that can be construed as “keyword stuffing”.
Now when I see a so-called SEO company mentioning “SEO” 25x on the first page of their website of course I’m going to call them out.
What’s worse is in the actual code that the search engines see they have SEO mentioned another 16x.
Seriously, this is not how SEO is done. And, frankly not something I teach my clients.
If you want to rank your website properly and be in the good graces of Google and the other search engines you can’t stuff keywords. Now in the case of this so-called SEO company…if they would replace all the duplicate stuffed keywords with other descriptive words they would actually rank higher and more people would find them.
So instead of saying SEO 25x – they could say… search, optimization, rank, results, SERP, pay per click, adwords, page 1, online marketing…etc.
Examples of keyword stuffing…
So when I see…

That brief introduction was on the SEO company’s front page website and was only just part of the content they had written. Oh, it went on and on. But starting with the headline and ending after the second sentence after “why your businesses need SEO services” count how many times SEO was mentioned… I counted 8x. That’s overkill and frankly not needed.
The point is… why use the same word over and over…there are so many descriptive words you could rank for…use them too.
