What is correct:

A) <meta name="keywords" content="money, promotion, cash, free, make money, internet, banners, paid, free traffic, earn, traffic, ads, webmaster ">

Or

b) <meta name="keywords" content="money,promotion,cash, free,make money,internet,banners,paid,free traffic,earn, traffic,ads,webmaster">

Don't laugh at me..

And what does anchor text mean?

Sorry, I am a total n00b, I have spend last 2 hours readin posts in here, but there is a lot I don't understand.

So could you give an example what anchor text is?

Please make it as simple as possible

-----------------------------

Oh and a 3rd question, I have had my site for 5 weeks now, why does Alexa say NO DATE too my site?
And I made a check on my website, even after 5 weeks its not listed on a single search engine..

I'm new too, but I believe the first example is the correct one. You can also do a search for "meta tag generators" and find some free sites that will generate your tags for you.

Hi Snickers,

Welcome to webmasterworld! I would say the first was correct.

Anchor text [webmasterworld.com]

Hope this helps.

I don't use spaces in meta keywords. I picked up that advice years ago and just kept doing it.

Actually...it's better to not put commas between your keywords because all the words listed can create multiple variations of keyword phrases. Example:

<meta name="keywords" content="money, promotion, cash, free, make money, internet, banners>

Can create multi word searches when people type in any of your keywords as: "free money" " promotion banners" "internet promotion" "free internet money promotion" etc etc...

Hope that helps? Most I found in other webmaster forums, and other, they say best to keep commas out.
