These are meta tags from AV's main page, now are they spamming the keyword "search"?


<title> AltaVista - Search</title>
<META name="description" content="AltaVista.com provides the most comprehensive search experience on the Web.">
<META name="keywords" content="search, searches, searching, searchers, advanced search, search help, search tutorial, search tips, search tools, community, international search, webmasters, message boards, directory, directories, boolean queries">

That is really wild stuff. Those tags are still there. Why on earth would AV need to have tags on it's own page? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
