    About Keywords...

    (1) I have a question about using plural word in web pages. If I'm trying to target a word ("peanut" for example) should I use "peanut" and "peanuts" in my meta tags?

    If someone searches for "Peanuts" will they also get sites optimized for "peanut?" Vice versa?


    (2) Also. If I'm optimizing for "Cheap Peanuts" do I need to also include "Cheap Peanut" in my meta tags?


    (3) Finally, how should keywords be typed? With a comma? With a space? I've been doing it like this:

    kitty, cat, kittens, felines, etc

    Is this correct?



    Thanks

    Re: About Keywords...

    This is my opinion...

    (1) I have a question about using plural word in web pages. If I'm trying to target a word ("peanut" for example) should I use "peanut" and "peanuts" in my meta tags?


    I would say use peanuts. I think search engines use some sort of string matching. If they find the search terms in your keywords you're ok.


    If someone searches for "Peanuts" will they also get sites optimized for "peanut?" Vice versa?


    I think so.


    (2) Also. If I'm optimizing for "Cheap Peanuts" do I need to also include "Cheap Peanut" in my meta tags?


    Upto you. I wouldn't think of searching for one cheap peanut.


    (3) Finally, how should keywords be typed? With a comma? With a space? I've been doing it like this:

    kitty, cat, kittens, felines, etc

    Is this correct?


    I use spaces. Have a look at this:

    - a, great, website
    - a great wbesite

    Both would show up for "great". But I think the top would have trouble with the phrase "a great website", because the commas split up the words.
