    Keywords tag query

    I know the keyword tag is now nearly redundant but I use it anyway as it cant do any harm, but I have a query.

    Say you have a site about jessica alba, in the keywords tag could you put

    'jessica alba, jesicca alba pictures, jessica alba biography' etc or does it have to be

    'jessica alba,pictures,biography'

    Can you put the keyword before the 'biography' and 'pictures'?

    Thanks

    1) Meta tags don't affect SEO so don't worry about it.

    2) Either way is fine. One isn't better then the other.

    It used to affect SEO. Nowadays they have limited uses. Some of them are:

    1) The description tag is occasionally used in a search engine listing if no other description can be found. Keep in mind this does not affect your rankings.

    2) Some directories will pull your keywords and description when you submit your site to them.
