    I'm using wordpress and had a question on how you apply keywords to the page.

    I have longtail keywords on a single short tail keyword that the article is targeting.

    i.e. lose weight (Short tail)
    i.e (longtails) lose weight fast
    lose weight quickly
    Lose weight in 24 hours

    I have a list of 15 terms like this.

    When comma seperating them should i do it as phrases?

    i.e. lose weight ,lose weight fast,lose weight quickly,Lose weight in 24 hours

    Or as seperate terms.
    i.e. lose, weight, fast,quickly,24 hours

    The second option means I don't have a huge list of repeating terms in the keyword tag of the page.

    thanks for the help

    Hi,

    The keyword tag is supposedly ignored by google these days. I believe a few of the other SE's might still use it though.

    Correct usage would be as you listed first:

    yup, the same is true for any backlinks you create, use the the exact complete phrase that you want to rank for as anchor text.

    Generally in SEO when we say keyword we mean keyword phrase.
