    As many as you need.

    But they will only help if they are related to the written content and have appropriate alt text and so on. The actual benefit depends on the type of site and if people are using an image search to find your products or services.

    Yes, Images are helpful for SEO but make sure those images are not heavy as they will take more time to open and will decrease the page load time (negative effect on SEO). Also, they need to be relevant to your content so that we can add ALT and Title tag

    This is the era of visualization. Images and Videos does help you not only from the SEO point of view but also from the viewer’s point of view. But content is also having its importance with images. Perfect blend of images with original content can really help you improving your domain rank and rankings in search engines.

    not sure, if adding too many links would provide more help then adding just 2-3 images on each page. Will adding more images provide more benefit? what are your thoughts on this?

    Images yes do help to improve the website SEO. Don't bombard web page with images, use images if required. Optimize images to generate traffic from images, and to improve the keyword ranking.

    Yes, images help to SEO for site ranking because when you add image in your article that makes more attractive your article and it say something about your article what is actually in this (many user and visitor see image before Text) and add images with alt tag with targeted keyword it must help the spiders understand each of your images that driving more organic traffic to your web site.

    You must be add 2 -3 image in one page with SEO friendly (like Image size, image name, caption ).
