I have noticed on some sites the meta title tag is a group of keywords.

I feel that the title tag should be a statement which should contain some keywords and not just comma seperated keywords.

I believe using comma seperated keywords in the meta title tag would be treated as spam by most search engines. Is that correct?

Please share your thoughts on the same and I would be greatful.


thanks and regads,

title tag has two big functions that you need to balance. as you mentioned one function is the seo aspect. search engines do give a boost to your rankings when the keyword is in the title tag.

the other function is usability. the title tag is what appears in the serps for your site. if your title tag looks spammy you will get a lower click through from the serp.

i wouldnt worry about what others are doing. keyword stuffing the title tag is very unlikely to be a significant help to them. i would focus on your site and make sure you balance those two functions.
