you can also use Mozilla add-on (extension) called SEO Quake - to see the keyword density of a post. Also there are a lot of useful features inside it! :-) I use it a lot!

Hi everyone, keywords are the most important part of our website. We have to be very careful when we choose keywords for our website. There are 3 thing that we need to care when choosing our keywords.
1) Always choose keywords with high search and low competition.
2) Always use popular words in your keywords.
3)Always use log tale keywords.
keyword density means the number of times keywords appear in the content.
We have use a density maximum 3%  that means if we have a 100 words paragraph then keywords can appear only one time.
It is very important to take care for keyword density because if we use more our keywords then it is called keyword stuffing.
And Google don't like this.
So if you want Google don't Penalize your site then you need to care for that.
