    I have a Joomla website and was thinking of looking into auto keywords and auto descriptions via Joomla exstenstions, when posting an article to help speed things up.

    I was wondering what you guys thing? Is this good or bad for SEO?

    Too much auto is probably bad. Pre-populated fields where you get to delete the unsuitable keywords before publication is better.

    Where do the Joomla extensions get their keywords from?

    ThreadKiller The software I am looking at says

    -----------------

    This native Joomla 1.5 - 3.0 plugin automatically generates keywords and description for each article by pulling text from the title and/or the content to help with SEO. It also gives you the ability to set different title configurations, robots meta tags and google webmaster verification keys. Joomla provides a great system for including metadata keywords and description on articles. When editing an article there is a spot on the right hand side of the page to edit the keywords and description (it's under "Metadata Information"). This information is used to provide the tags for the page and to connect pages using the standard Related Articles module that comes with Joomla. But what if you don't want to have to think up and type in keywords and description every time? Wouldn't it be nice if the related articles plugin could just always work on the full text of the articles? That's what this plugin solves.

    Whenever you create or save an article in Frontend or Backend, this plugin automatically fills in the keywords and description for you.
    It does this for the keywords by:
    1. Parsing all the words in the article and ordering them by number of times used (you can choose to generate keywords from title, content or both)
    2. Removes the most common words in your language from the list by comparing it against a blacklist
    3. Adds the top words into the keywords section (Limit keywords by length or number)

    After saving the article you can also make some changes and any words you add to the keyword or description section will not be overwritten when you save. But what is with that many old articles without keywords? This version adds the ability to regenerate keywords for all articles in the database.

    -----------------

    I think I am going to give it a try.
