comment Which URL is SEO friendly?
I wouldn't say there's been a suggestion of artificially adding keywords, if, by artifice, we mean shoehorning them in without regard for usability or common sense. Use of a word separator, to me at least, aids legibility for humans and - according to the video linked above - makes more sense to Google too.

comment What constitutes a “substantial, good-faith effort to remove the links”
How have you redirected links from external domains? Are you saying that the linked content itself now re-directs off-site?

comment Should I use schema.org location tagging on every page?
It'd be perfectly valid to do it for the footer info, and personally I would, for the sake of completeness. While microdata isn't doing much more than power Rich Snippets right now, it'll grow in the future, so I'd use it wherever you can (or at least structure your code in such a way that you can add it without difficulty later on).

comment Linking competitor with the same keyword i am targeting : Good or Bad for Seo?
@milo5b I agree, as you say, depends on several factors, but set against the SEO risks of (a) buying and selling links and (b) openly admitting to it, the keyword competition element would be the least of my concerns.

comment Will we be penalized for having multiple external links to the same site?
@merk I see. I hadn't realised that a PR passing link was an intrinsic part of the service. That may increase the risk yet further; it sounds like a breach of Google guidelines to me (see support.google.com/webmasters/bin/…). It's a matter of weighing the value you think that service puts on your bottom lines against what it might cost in the event you suffer as a result.

@merk Oh...sorry, and yes, if you're nofollowing them, do all of them. It's very much all or none.

@merk Bear in mind, you don't know what kind of SEO activities your customers indulge in: if, for whatever reason, they are caught out, better that your site is insulated from it. I'm sure the risk is minimal, but wherever users are able to post their own links, I wouldn't take chances - especially since the precaution is so easy to take. But don't take my word for it - the Google page I linked to above explicitly discusses use of nofollow where "can't or don't want to vouch for the content of pages you link to".

comment Does google see the output of document.write?
Link in comment above deals with JS issue. But why not just use "nofollow" attribute?
