    What's the best way to write your "Keywords"?

    What's the best way to write your META "Keywords"? As far as I know you use comma's between your keywords. But I know some people who just use spaces.

    Does this make any difference?

    I suppose commas would split up possible 'phrases' created from a list of keywords.

    i.e. "HTML Tutorials" may be better optimised with:

    HTML Tutorials Reference

    than

    HTML, Tutorials, Reference

    Keywords are mostly useless nowadays, but the official spec says use commas between words/phrases.

    Yep. But not just ANY content. Keyword rich content.

    is it still important to have keywords and descriptions in your meta tags or is it better to just incorporate them both into you page content?

    Some of the big search engines ignore Meta Keywords. Google, AV and Lycos ignore them for sure. You can't spam you're way into these engines anymore, you need good, relevant information on your pages.

    Having said that, Meta Keywords will do no harm, and I write mine with commas and spaces too:

    keyword1, keyword2, keyword3
