Outbound link means that you are giving other websites link in your blog post. Outbound link also called external link. In this image I have marked in Red color, That is outbound link is going on Google Adsense official website.

In that case you can provide that mobile brands official website’s link in your “Android” blog post. It will also help you more to rank your website in search engine. That was how to write awesome blog post.
Keyword density is most important thing while writing blog. In simple language keyword density should be 3-3.5 percent.
If you are planning to write 1000 word article then you should mention main keyword for 3-4 times. Don’t use all keywords in one paragraph.
You can divide keywords according to article length.

Once you have done, Just keep 3-3.5 percent density for main keyword according to Article length. Use some keywords in header tag with main keyword at least once. After that you can create number of header tags according to your article length. We have already talked about bold keywords. Now it’s time to main Long tail keywords.
For example, You have 10-15 long tail keywords. Just add that keywords in whole article (Don’t repeat same keyword). If you have new website then it will help you to get rank in google with long tail keyword.
