Links serve two purposes: to direct your readers to other useful information and to direct them to other articles on your blog.

There isn't really a numerical limit per say, but don't put so many links it looks spammy. Ad links naturally to your writing so it supplements what you are trying to get across.

It depends on question, but in most cases I use only 1 link.

Default 100 Link Rule

This is post dependant and think about the end user not the search engine, is it useful? Then link it, however you should bear in mind that a general rule of thumb is not to have more than 100 hyperlinks on any page.

The 100 link limit actually came from sources within Google and has been restated for years, during March of 2009 Matt Cutts posted

"The original reason we provided that recommendation is that Google used to index only about 100 kilobytes of a page. When we thought about how many links a page might reasonably have and still be under 100K, it seemed about right to recommend 100 links or so. If a page started to have more than that many links, there was a chance that the page would be so long that Google would truncate the page and wouldn't index the entire page."

I always try and keep my links on a page to less than 100 (not always possible). Back in the day crawlers capped the amount of data they would process for any given page, due to bandwidth limitations.

A blog is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries ("posts"). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page.
