As for me, I limit my posting from 5-10 per day to avoid being banned.

Real Time Search is the new added feature in Google Search Results wherein it displays live tweets, Yahoo Answers, news articles and Web pages stream on the actual result pages of your query. I believe that this new update in Google SERP's is a big benefit for SEO. Say for example, if you tweet a link URL about your product that is packed with keywords, there's a possibility that when users make use of this keyword to look for the similar product, that link will appear number one on Real Time Search. Most likely, if your content contains a good review about your product or service, there's a chance that this user will be interested on that product and this means conversion.

Is it really the keyword density tool you want to have or is it the keyword analysis tool? Keyword density tool is only used to check the denseness of keywords in an article, so if you only have 2-3 words to check, then I doubt you're asking for the right tool. If what you want is the tool to determine the competitiveness of each keyword, then I suggest that you use Google Adwords Keyword tool. It's a free keyword tool that can analyze the trend, level of competency and # of clicks per month.

If the previous URL is not working anymore, you may use redirect codings to redirect the url to it's new URL. Or as per Bob's advice, you can use the Google webmaster tool to remove the URL from Google area in case Google got a hold of a page they shouldn’t have.

Well it depends! Maybe the keyword you're trying to get rank has high level of competition. If that's the case, then you really need a lot of effort to rank it high on SERP's. If you think you're keywords are quite competitive, I guess, you still need to push your effort to get good results. Just make sure that you're doing quality link building and you do it naturally. Some of the trusted link building techniques are blog commenting on do follow blogs, blog commenting on High PR related niche, guest posting, article submission (but exclude submissions to those article banks that were greatly affected by the Google Panda), video submission, social bookmarking and forum participation.

In my opinion, it's the effect of the Google Panda Update. According to Sistrix.com's data, some of the oldest and largest content farms suffered huge drops; sites such as wisegeek.com (-77%), ezinearticles.com (-90%), suite101.com (-94%) and hubpages.com (-87%) so better not to submit articles to this sites. Just continue to produce unique, interesting and relevant content and your site will surely begin to rank well again for the specific keywords and phrases. Just make sure that when you do Link Building, you do it naturally. Also, I suggest that you increase the number of your postings per week. Make it at least 2 posts per week.

Actually, there are so many ways to get more visitors on your website. Publishing a well-tagged article or webpage to bookmarking sites including Google, Delicious or Digg, is one of the possible ways to generate essential inbound links that are guaranteed to boost your page rank while boosting the current traffic of your webpage or website. Social networks are one of the effective ways to generate more visitors to website. By making use of Facebook, You tube and Twitter, your content can spread like a virus on the web.

To do so, you have to share valuable content from your site. In Facebook, what some experts do is they import their article in the "notes" feature in Facebook and create backlinks within the post. In Twitter, basically they just tweet whatever their new content is. But the truth is, most social networks like Twitter are no-follow sites. They're effective for branding and getting traffic going to your website.

Yes, I do participate in "Forum Discussions". And backlinks in the signature section can help (in a way) with your link building efforts and ultimately, can increase your ranking in SERPs. What I do is, I choose threads/posts that have questions where I can showcase my expertise and give insightful answers. Not all forums will allow you to post backlinks on your signature immediately, there are some forums that won't allow you to post signatures after certain days.

Have you tried Social Media Marketing? It's been proven that social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin are the major factors to get more leads. Thus, I believe that SEO and social media must work hand in hand in making your site search engine friendly and open offsite pathways. By doing so, you are attracting online traffic and in time, conversions.

Actually, I have read that there are website owners who experienced a PR increase since Google announced the recent Google Panda update. The truth is, Google Panda update focuses on trimming down websites with duplicate and low-quality content, specifically content farms such as Ezinearticles, Buzzle, etc. Thus, if you think you're not affected by that update, then you can assume that you're pleasing Google with your strategy.

In submitting my website to directories, I have this list of directories with their PRs. I sort it highest to lowest. After which, I choose the top 30 high PR directories and submit my URL to each of the website on that list. For social bookmarking, I choose the top 3 high PR bookmarking sites, and submit max of 3 urls per site. The most important thing you have to keep in mind is, in doing any link building efforts, be natural, make it look like one to avoid being tagged as spam.
