Keyword parsing and spacing
I have a couple of questions... Thank you

 1:47 pm on Apr 17, 2001 (gmt 0)

I have a couple of questions regarding keyword parsing and spacing between repeated keywords. I have read advise about these, but some of it has been contradictory, and I am still a little confused about if I have it right.

Q1. Keyword parsing
It is my understanding that spiders always use all the parsings in Example 2 for the keyword phrases in Example 1. Is this correct? Would Example 3 be redundant for the keyword phrase "red socks"? Would the spiders also find the parsings in Example 4?

Example 1
red socks roster, baseball

Example 2
red socks
socks roster
red socks roster

Example 3
red socks, red socks roster

Example 4
roster baseball
sock roster baseball
red sock roster baseball

Q2. Spacing between repeated keywords

Sometimes it is necessary to repeat a certain word in more than one keyword phrase. Is it always sufficient to have one keyword phrase between the two phrases-as in Example 5? Is it always sufficient to have one word-as in Example 6 and Example 7? What is the maximum number of times a particular keyword should be repeated in a META keyword list, description or title?

Example 5
red socks, baseball, red shirts

Example 6
red socks, red shirts

Example 7
go billy go

Thank you.

From what I have learned from inside these wonderful walls of WmW is that you should not use them more than 3 times as to not risk getting penalized.

There are many threads in this Keyword Discussion forum with this topic....I believe one of them is 'Keyword Usage', and another one is 'Meta Tags, use them or not?'. I can't right now, but if you can't find them, I will get the threads for you when I get back.

I checked it out real quick before running to my meeting, and I believe this thread will be of help to you:
