saving space

Hi everyone. I have a question concerning meta keyword tag. The thing is that there are two parameters at SEO tools: Space Utilization and Word Utilization. As the keyword is long, it utilizes a lot of space, but when it comes to counting the optimal number of words, it can be about 100 percents while Space utilization parameter is low. The question is: is it possible to save space without putting a "space-button"? Will it work with search engines? Will that change search results?

correct me if I'm wrong, but for me the optimal number of words is zero. Why should any SE worth its money rely on your keywords tag?

I still use meta keywords, but as a memo pad -- it's a handy place to note down the 3 to 8 keywords I hope the page will rank for. I think Yahoo may still check it for alternate spellings (I haven't tested for a while) but because the keyword tag was so abused in years gone by, it really hasn't had any significant play for quite a few years.

Only makes sense if you think about it -- meta keywords are totally hidden from the end user, and search engines today are looking for signals of relevance for the visible content, and not just text matches.
