    Hi Guys,

    Say i have 7 keywords i have seo's a site for with a seperate page for each keyword, in the description meta tags, do i need to reference all 7 keywords?

    like:

    "welcome to my site, keyword1, keyword2 etc till keyword 7"

    in a way that's readable to the user of course.

    so that on each page, the title tags,keyword tags and the description all have the keyword in it?

    thanks for any info guys

    Graham

    In the title tags and the description tags only use keyword you want to optimize for. You can use all 7 keywords in your keyword tags though. Just make sure you put the keyword you want to optimize for first.

    I would say change the description optimized to your page keyword. Google doesn't just rank domains, it also ranks pages :)

    agree with above answers, preferably just main keyword should be in description,

    you may use multiple keywords in keywords meta but main first ( I do first and last ), even though keyword meta is not the that important to Search engines anymore

    In my opinion ideally you would optimize each page for single main keyword, and you should have DIFFERENT descriptions for each page. (even if it is just replacing the keyword)

    for other on site optimization I use main keyword as title, page name, first and last word in visible content, headings, couple times in bold and interlink pages with main keyword as anchor etc

    hope it helps

    According to Matt Cutts (Google God, LOL) and other sources I have read, but not bookmarked, the keywords meta is NOT read by Google (or any other MAJOR search engine)...

    They do read the description meta, and (of course) the content.
