Google And Its Algorithm
As a result of keyword stuffing and people trying to trick the system Google have evolved their search algorithm to ensure that the quality of content was the most important thing.

Google has advanced from the days of trying to fit your keyword in as many times as possible and now thanks to Googles use of AI it now understands, and values, the context of your content.
This means that while it will of course look to rank you for the keyword you are clearly targeting it will also rank you for other relevant search phrases as well.
Research, Research, Research
