Wanting to make "adsense" happy, i reduced that to "20" keywords.............
reply from adsense.
++++ <paraphrase email>After reviewing your site, we noticed there are excessive keywords on some of your pages. Publishers are not permitted to run Adwords on sites using exessive keywords in the content/code </paraphrase email>
OK.....OK..i reduced the keywords to 13.
same reply from adsense. (see above)
BUT my new pages were spidered by Google and now they have dropped to 50-60 in the results from 3-8 (my pages are NOT SPAM) so now i have lost revenue from the normal results for my keyword search AND from adsense!
OK...OK...Ok....now i have reduced my keywords (and now I AM getting frustrated) even further which means IF adsense DO re-activate my account all i will get is PSA ads anyway!
......where's the Gin?......ya..who?

What puzzles me is that we're been told that "Google disregards the Keywords meta tag", so this is a revelation. While it may disregard it for ranking, it seems that the Keywords tag is very important for a publisher.
Rather than terminate accounts for excessive kwds and waste their employees' time responding to the publisher, it would seem simpler to trigger PSAs after a certain threshold.
As for the meta keywords tag, that's exactly what it's for and as far as I know Google ignores it anyways, so I wouldn't worry about that one.
