Question I notice some sellers have keywords listed at the bottom of their item descriptions. What is the advantage of this versus using the meta keywords tag? Will this increase chances of being included in a search engine search?

Thanks for you insight....

Depends

Many search engines really only look at the first 250-300 words or so.
If your description is long placing keywords at the bottom may or may not make a difference.

I personally use keywords on my about page and other text pages here on ecrater. It can't hurt. That's how I see it.
On my text pages it seems to help being up my pages in a web search.

.... meant to also say


Meta tag serve a different purpose the the product description. Search engines look at your meta tags to determine if you might have what they search is looking for. If yoru Meta Tags have a match then the search will continue to go deeper into your site.

In writing the admin section on keywords (Meta Keyword Tags) is there any limit to the number of words to include?
