I usually target 2-3 words or phrases per page. I don't usually look at keyword density, but some people say to keep it around 2%.

I think 4 keywords works best.
So long as they all apply to one another.

Check out the sites currently ranking in top 10 for the queries you want to rank for. You can probably get a good idea of the terms they are targeting and the keyword density. Then check their backlinks and anchor text.

I second sem4u's comment about not looking at keyword density. For a percentage to be accurate, you would need a tool that understood relatively complex relationships between words as Google's algorithm does.

And even if you had such a tool, it's likely to be less effective than a writer, who will naturally use desirable variations of words during the process of writing.

As for how many keywords per page, I'll be slightly mischievous and say: a hundred? A thousand perhaps? How many is going to depend on what you write and how popular the theme of your page is. If you have a 500 word article, there are a substantial number of 2, 3, 4, 5 word etc. combinations that your page can theoretically target.

I would shoot for 4-6 keywords to target - including phrases per page. If you shoot for too many you will nto be hitting any at all.

I think keyword density should be 3% to 7%.

i agree with the above poster i try to aim for between 3% and 7% normally end up around 3% or 4%, i typically target 2 words per page.

There's no general guideline when it comes to keyword density.

There are excellent tools out there that allow you to analyze the top XX search results for, among other things, keyword density.

In geneal, I usually stick with the average keyword density of the top 20 google result pages unless they ALL have extremely high # of backlinks (which is something to factor in)
