Keyword fine tuning - is this duplicate KW?

    I have two sites that I'm experimenting with. Both are aged domains but I abused them with autoblogs and got sandboxed. The niche is competitive - computer security.

    I built nice clean sites to start. Here's what I did next:

    Site 'A' :
    - about 40 pages of good quality re-written content
    - 15 articles using AMR
    - generated SB backlinks

    Site 'B' :
    - 2 pages of original content
    - cleaned up the on-page seo stuff only - nothing else.

    After 2 months of working the sites, Site 'A' popped up on page 1 (8th spot) and site 'B' is top of page 2, but both are secondary keywords - not the primary ones I want to rank for.

    I think I can improve both sites by working on the keywords.

    Especially duplicate keywords. For example: "lawnmower, riding lawnmower, electric lawnmower" ~ is "lawnmower" considered duplicated and is this a problem with google?

    Should I reduce the total number of keywords under meta keywords? Will that focus the attention on the keywords I'm trying to rank for?

    Does keyword density in the body matter so much? I read recently that it's not so important anymore but I'm not sure.

    Thanks for the help.
