    As far as length of your keyword phrase you will need to strike a balance. A single word keyword is too general. As you add words your keyword phrase becomes more specific meaning that it targets your intended audience better. Too long of a keyword phrase would become too specific and could loose good potential visitors to your site. I think many recommend three to four word keyword phrases.

    In your example it looks like your real keywords are 'free games' and online, action and arcade are modifiers. In building backlinks you might use 'free online games', 'free action games' and 'free arcade games' as anchor text in various places. Your example might be used as a meta description for your home page. I suspect that all of these are high competition keyword phrases. You should do some keyword research to see if you can find some phrases that will bring targeted traffic but be a bit easier to rank and use them as well. Some of these might be in the form of additional modifiers like 'free racing action games'.

    There is no hard and fast rule regarding the length of key phrases but from search engines point of view and according to guidelines, it should be about 256 characters.

    120 character is enough, It will contain hardly 10 keywords. If you work for these 10 keywords properly then you would be the king of those keywords.

    no more than 65 characters for title, no more than 155 characters for description. For content, there is no need to put many words in content, but instead you can put images there. Try to combine images and words in content; this will help you get good ranking.

    I feel it depends on the query you have to search. Mormally three words are engough to get the demanded results if use correctly and in order.

    Depends on what you want to target. Shorter keywords generally have more competition but target a larger audience, shorter keywords have less competition but a smaller audience.

    agreed! 3 word are just enough, 4 is really too long, and the best is below 100 character and the max should 120.... i wonder is there any people out there really put long tail keyword like 6-7 words?? do search engine allow it?
