Keyword Density Problem

A part of my keyword has a density of 4,3% on my site. Would it hurt my rankings?

Are you saying your keyword density is too low?
4.3% would be low, you just need to add more keywords but don't stuff them in and make it spammy. Also try padding out your text.

Too high. I thought a good keyword densitiy for SEO would be 3-4%.

It really all depends on how big your article/blog post is.
4% is fine, anything under 1% is bad (that is what I have been told anyways)

More than 4% is bad, the best is 3+. But what matter the most is that the article is big and the keyword is in the title, bolted, italicized etc.

Even if it's only a word which has a density of 4%?

If it's a work it's ok but if google sees you are putting your keyword too much ...

Try to italisize and bold your KW once and put it 1-2 times in the first 2 sentences and title of course. Trust me, Google will find out itself what your page talks about.

Do not worry too much about the densities. It all depends on your keyword. In reality, keyword density is no longer such a huge ranking factor. Google wants the text to be relevant. With this in mind, you need extra natural keywords that would normally come up in an article. For instance, let us say that they keyword you plan to optimize for is "protein". In this case having just 3% density would sound off some alarms since we have many other related keywords that normally appear in an article that talks about protein like "protein supplements", "whey protein", "protein isolates" and so on.
Now, if your keyword is "whey protein", you would have other normal things included like "buying whey protein", "BRAND whey protein" and so on. It is all a matter of the text.
As somene else said, the most important thing is to have long content and the keyword in the right places. It has to feel NATURAL. If you read the text out loud and you see are bothered by the presence of that keyword as it is repeated too many times, the density is surely too high. Focus on writing an article that is natural for the reader and then rephrase in the right spots (sub-headings and so on)
