The space between commas only takes up space!

eg
apples,pears,bananas,cooking with fruit

hehe

You will get many differing opinions on this subject.

To tell you the truth, I am not sure that it makes one iutta of a difference how you arrange them. The engines have downgraded the importance of the keyword tag immensely.

I would try to make sure that the tag on each page contains words that are actually on that particular page. And, of course, research your best targeted keyword phrases first.

I use commas on some pages and not in others and haven't noticed any difference. I agree with ihelpyou that the keywords should mimic the words on the page. I do this in the order they appear in the content, starting with the main keyword for the page.

I think the discussion was concluded before as this:
AH-HA, NA-AH, AH-AH, NA-AH

Overall, I don't think either side has been given enough supporting evidence. I did half my site with commas and half without - I'm not seeing a difference. Use whatever is easier for you.

"foo bar,rocks,stones,quartz rocks"

@keywords = split(/\,/);

Now keywords and phrases are retained in each element of keywords. That is the way most search engines break apart keywords. If you use commas, your retain the phrases and will be found under "quartz rocks".

Use no comma's and no garantee that your phrases will be retained.

@keywords = split(/ /)

Good by phrases. You will NOT be found under "quartz rocks".

Maybe I'm stupid, but I don't even bother with keywords meta anymore. Most engines rank it the same as body text at best, and it actually takes a reasonable bit of work.

ggrot,

definitely not stupid to not bother with them, I have heard people getting top ten results without them

Right on Agerhart and ggrot. I'm down to just 4-5 keywords per line now. I figure that is as far as some engines are counting them anyway and they just steal bandwidth.
