Keyword stuffing is the BAD and obsolete practice of writing in keywords that you are wanting to rank for in a unnatural way, like in your Title Tags you would do this:

Dog Training - Dog Training Tips - Dog Training Guide - Get Dog Training Tips

And in your Meta Description Tag:

Get Dog Training, Dog Training Tips, Dog Training Guides, Get Dog Training Tips and guides all in one place dog training for dogs, dogs...

And in your content:

So you want to learn dog training in Tampa? All you have to do to learn dog training in Tampa is search Bing.com and type in "dog training in Tampa", then dog training in Tampa sites will pop up and then you click a dog training in Tampa site to see what they have its that's simple.

Don't Do IT!

Stuffing keywords in your post or article. This is a definite no no. All you need to do is put your keywords in your title(heading) and once in your content.

I could be wrong. Since Google has developed Panda and Penguin (which I still need to understand completely myself), the practice of keyword stuffing is going to be more and more useless. In some way, Google is trying to send a message to people that you better make an effort to put some quality content - better be great content - not just a bunch of junk like keyword stuffing in order to game the search engine.

As everyone said. Stuffing your content with keywords is keyword stuffing. Used to be a straightforward method to google riches back in the days, but earns a good kick in the ass if used now :)

"Keyword stuffing" refers to the practice of loading a webpage with keywords or numbers in an attempt to manipulate a site's ranking in Google search results. Often these keywords appear in a list or group, or out of context (not as natural prose).

Keyword stuffing is the repetition of same keywords into the content in order to manipulate website rankings on search results. This practice comes under black hat technique and should be avoided while adding content into webpages.
The best advice here is to not overload content with same keywords. Instead of adding same keywords, try finding out new search terms to add into content. One can use few keywords as heading tags in content, alt tags in images, in website title, meta description and meta keywords.

I believe "Keyword stuffing" means to put more keyword dense content, may be more unrelevant keywords or hiding keyword from actual web visitors which the keywords they have put in. This practice is not recommended and may be receive any hard results from the search engines.

Keyword stuffing is the practice of inserting a large number of keywords into Web content and Meta tags in the attempt to artificially increase a page's ranking in search results and drive more traffic to the site. A keyword is a significant term that is relevant to the content in question.
The practice is often used to drive traffic to fraudulent or malicious websites. Keyword stuffing in content is known as spamdexing. Keywords may be hidden in content through a number of methods, such as matching font color to the background, setting font size to zero or putting it behind an image.
Examples of keyword stuffing:
• Lists of phone numbers without substantial added value
• Blocks of text listing cities and states a webpage is trying to rank for
• Repeating the same words or phrases so often that it sounds UN-natural.
