In one of my articles, I can't seem to avoid using one of my keywords numerous times. There doesn't seem to be any way around it. How many times can you use a keyword before google will penalize you for keyword stuffing?
Like Aletta said, there is no specific keyword density that Google is looking at. From a reader's point of view (and a writer's too), reading (and using) the same keyword over and over on an article is boring.
Try using variations of the keyword, or use its synonyms instead. I try to use my target keyword once in every hundred or so words. The rest of the time that I need to use the same keyword, I look for its synonym, or a variation that I can use on that sentence.
This is where keyword research comes in. You can refer to your list and see which keywords mean the same thing. Ubersuggest.org is also good place to get variations on your keyword too.
Hope that helps. Have a good day!
