Q3: How does article submission help your ranking with Google?

These articles will rank in Google and people who search for the key phrase the article is optimized for will visit the article and 1) click through via the links in the article to your site.
Also these links will pass 2) ranking weight and 3) Pagerank to your site which will over all help your website rank higher.

Q4: Is it an good idea to go for ‘high value’ keywords or easy to get rankings?
A: You want to spend your time and money trying to rank for key phrases that you have a good change to rank for. If you have a new website for reselling computers it will be a waste of time trying to rank for the keyword “computer”.
Also you don’t want to just rank for key phrases that are very easy but have little or not traffic. So you have to balance between no traffic and to hard to rank for key phrases.
You can get a SEO Expert to do key phrase research for you. They have experience in evaluating websites site authority and how competitive key phrases are.

Q5: Do links from paid sites have more authority that free sites?
A: Not necessarily. There are a number of things that cause an inbound link to have more authority that other links. A link that is in the content versus in the footer with a number of other links. A link that is from a website of the same theme. A link from a site that has high site authority. A link from a site that is ranking well for the key phrase you are targeting.
Q6: Should each website page be centered around one keyword phrase?
A: Yes! You should create a page for every key phrase you are targeting. The reason for this is so that you can fully optimize the URL, title tag, meta description, picture, and content for that one key phrase. It is not possible to do properly for more than one key phrase.

Q7: What should the keyword density be? How much is too much?
A: I have not checked the keyword density of any page in the last 3 years. Just produce quality content write for humans and make a point of using a thesaurus so you can search your key phrase for synonyms and antonyms.
If you are convinced that keyword density is important just Google up your key phrase and check the keyword density of the top 5 pages and try to keep close to that.
