I'm just wondering about the Star rating system in TT.
I just put in my keyword phrase and got 4 Stars (relatively easy) -
So how many articles do I need to write?
Also, is there a way to tell how many backlinks I'll need?
Is the chart above correct, or is that for something different. I thought 1 star is the most difficult, 5 is the easiest..

This chart seems backwards to me. If 0 is most difficult, wouldn't you need more articles to rank, 30? And 4 stars being relatively easy should need 4 articles (not 20). It just doesn't make sense.
So, is there a way to know, or formula to find out how many backlinks I would need?
0 - 3 articles at most
1 - 4 articles at most
2 - 6 articles at most
3 - 10 articles at most
4 - 20 articles at most
5 - 30

Sorry for the confusion. Your site should be optimized only for a few keywords which are tough to rank for (0 or 1 star ratings) otherwise, it will be difficult for your site to rank well.
It would be best if the pages on your site are optimized for relatively easy keywords but sometimes Mark does optimize a few of his pages on difficult keywords based on hunch :) But these pages should not be more than 10% of the total pages on your site. Grady gave a good advice when he said that you should focus your efforts on words that you could rank well for :)

If I want to have a site that is about Internet Marketing and SEO it would be ok to try to rank your pages for a keyword each wouldn't it? For example: article marketing, seo, traffic travis, affilorama and more. Not all on a page but they are on separate pages on one site.
