Search volume represents the number of times a keyword is searched.

For example, the keyword “best bikes” is searched for 100 times in a month, then on next month it was searched for 200 times.

On average it was searched 150 times

Some tools show it as it is searched, while others give average searches.

Keyword density means how many times you have put a keyword into an article.
For example, the best bikes in the article can be written 2 to 3 times in different tags(H1 H2 H3).

What is keyword stuffing?
