Question: How many is too many keywords? Is there a pracrtical limit?
Answer: There is definitely a limit to keywords. Focus, focus, focus! Leaving aside the home page (which is very special), each landing page should be laser focused on a keyword family – I use geico.com as an example, and notice that they have pages on Motorcycle Insurance, RV insurance, etc., each is laser focused on one keyword family.
Beyond that, the tags have some limits. The TITLE tag should be less than 66 characters, for instance. We teach this in our classes on SEO friendly keywords and page tags.
