    Hi Friends,

    I already added 28 keywords for my blog meta tag, so what is the optimal number of keywords in meta tag. If i added thousand of keywords for meta tag then Google will ban me? or other problem arise?

    Thanks

    James

    I think you have enough meta keywords to use in your meta tag. Adding thousands of keywords would be impossible since there is a limit, I think about 40 keywords. To be sure, only add keywords that is relevant to your niche.

    Major search engine like Google, Bing did not give credit to keywords tag, abuse on keywords tag may penalty by search engine. Insert one to two relevant keywords tag is more than enough to target others search engine.

    Keep in mind, as ReviewsThatStick has said, that the keywords must be relevant to your niche, but they also must be relevant to the content of the page. The content of the page must also be readable and sound natural. Although you may not need to keep it as low as jeremy has suggested, a few keywords, rather than a few dozen, is probably more than enough.

    I think it is indeed better to have a few keywords that is relevant to your niche and to the content rather than a thousand keywords (if even possible) that are mostly and probably not even related to your niche or the content. It's always quality over quantity in this case.

    Here is my understanding of meta keywords.

    Max of 874 characters. You can only use a keyword 3 times and that max of 3 includes if the keyword is in a phrase. Keywords in singular form and in plural form are considered separate keyword. Separate list with commas and don't use spaces. Put most important keywords first.

    You will find people that disagree. And also keep in mind, google claims they don't use keywords and they probably don't put much importance on them. I believe they suggest putting misspellings into this keywords list, though. Many people say it is a waste of time to use meta keywords but I use them anyway, in hopes they will be used by some search engines and google might change their mind in future.

    I am agree with you "jeremy". Keywords meta tag is obsolete and search engines do not give any priority to it. So just put a few keywords and focus on your title tag and meta description and content.

    you can add up to 250 to 260 character in meta keyword and you can target many keywords in this length so there is limit of character .

    According to me, 10-12 keywords are just alright to use in one page of your website. the more keywords you use, it will take more time to get optimized and this more time to get ranked. so use limited keywords.

    Based on my experienced about meta keywords, that day I have 40 keywords and it's better. So if the page has yet space to add keywords it's alright I guessed.

    I think that Google,Bing and other search engine don't care for keywords.Keyword is only use for searching whatever you put that helps to user to search your content.

    I also agree with you peter. In the past few days meta keywords I used is only 5 natural words and I think that's enough to find my site in all users.

    adding keywords in meta tag is a waste of time as no search engine is considering them for ranking factor, meta description tag is important to show your own customized description to customers in search engines. If you want to add meta keywords, then you can use 5-6 keywords, but remember that it will not help in anything.
