How many keywords should you try to optimise a page for? Would 3 be too many? Also does it make any difference if one of them is a 6 word long tail keyword. Have the recent Google algo changes affected this at all? Any tips on the best approach for kw placement would be appreciated.

    Optimizing a single page for 3 keywords is perfectly fine. Obviously keep them all relevant to you most important keyword per each page.

    Look at Wikipedia & how they optimize their <h2> tags for multiple keywords per each page. They also use matching internal pages with internal links for each of the keywords they're targeting on-page. Don't go overboard with tons of links per page like Wikipedia does, keep it simple & focused. Less is more for SEO when it comes to internal/external links.

    Also look into SEO silos that leverage relevant internal links which can help rank your money page/s.

    Example of a single page targeting multiple relevant keywords:


    <title>Building Repair - domain.com</title>

    <h1>Building Repair</h1>

    <h2>Repairs</h2>
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur building repair adipiscing elit. Etiam egestas mauris eu tortor pellentesque nec iaculis orci eleifend. Etiam lobortis egestas purus vel pharetra.

    Using 3 keywords is fine as long as they are relevant to your content.
