  1. Thank you so much, as a beginner on SEO, I found this really helpful. Can I ask a couple of questions (sorry if they seem silly)

    What is The keyword density, is this to simply use the focus keyword multiple time throughout the paragraph of text?
    Should you concentrate on just one focus keyword? (one phrase for instance)
    Does Readability have any effect on SEO, or is this just to be user friendly?
