    For the past month I haven't been able to post the same keyword twice in my tags (ex. Putting 'product product review product reviews' becomes 'product review reviews' when it's saved)

    I figured it was a youtube update but my competitor posted a vid today and has the keyword multiple times in the tag!

    Am I missing something here? Why can he do it but I can't? Seems like that's a pretty good advantage for ranking.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Use quote, IE. --> "product" "product review" "product reviews"

    If the others suggestions do not work, try using commas.

    I'm pretty sure YouTube removes everything after the comma, so if you wrote "1, 2, 3 , 4" Youtube would only show "1". Could be wrong but from my past experiences this is what happened.

    "First Keyword","Second Keyword","Third Keyword" <- No space between commas and quote marks. That's what I've always used, but there may be multiple ways to enter keywords.

    Well that's the way I put in keywords and it works just fine. I put commas to separate the keywords, but when I save the video and then hit edit again, the commas have been change to quotes. So if I put 1, 2, 3, 4 and then save, then edit again, it will show "1" "2" "3" "4". I have never use the quotes to do it, but it should be the same.
