When submiting key words to search engines the words are to be separated by spaces only, so how do I differentiate a phrase or names so they make sense.

Hi, steppin out designs. Welcome to WebmasterWorld! When you say submit to search engine, do you mean the keyword meta tag on your web page?

Hi Again
I am very new at this so please try to bear with me if i'm not addressing your question properly - I think that it would be a keyword meta tag. Example if I am submitting several keywords that are meta- tags, like: beads,imported,bone etc. and I also want to submit 2 or more words: prayer beads, tibetan malas,the art of happiness etc when submitting some search engines specify to use spaces only, no commas.
So how can I differentiate between a phrase and a single word. Hope this makes sense.

I believe in this instance a search engine will look at all your keywords and compare all the different combinations of those words. For example, your keywords include:

red blue green yellow widget thing stuff

If someone types "yellow stuff", I believe the SE would be able to see that your keywords specify these two words and thus your site will appear in the results.

I think.
