Keywords Tag

How do I use my keywords in my keywords tag?

Howdy!

I have seen people use the keywords in the keywords tag many different ways. Is there a certain way that works the best, or does it not really matter?

For example, let say I own a Widgets company in Orlando.

I could use:

Orlando widgets , Orlando widgets company, Orlando widget seller , Orlando buyer, Orlando seller...

Or

Orlando, widgets, seller, buyer...

Or without commas

Orlando real estate agent company house buyer seller home...

I have seen people use their keywords in their keywords tag all 3 of these ways.

What format do you feel is best suited for the keywords tag?

Thanks,

Mongoo

Mona,

Without getting into whether keywords mean a lot to search engines anymore, I think that commas are not needed to separate keyword phrases. That also gives you combinations of terms that don't require you to repeat your keywords quite as frequently.

For example, instead of

Orlando widgets, Orlando widget, buy orlando widgets, Orlando widget company, widgets in orlando

you could just have

buy orlando widgets in orlando widget company

since all five phrases exist within the six keywords.

i agree with jonrichd, utilize ur keywords and make sure that it doesn't look spammy. on the other hand, SEs don't pay much attention on keywords anymore, may be other SEs consider meta keywords, but as far as google is concerned, meta keyword is not a big deal...
