When I used a space I only got One key word found using this tool.

When I put in comma's I got 19 key words.
I also am using keywords on All of my pages/topics. If you look at the source on my astronomy page http://hobbiesaboutus.synthasite.com/... you will find key words there as well. I've been working on that this morning and just had to show it off some

Thrundar is correct tiff, you need to add commas between the keywords.

Hi tiff

Keywords should be in lower case, separated by commas with a space after each comma.

you say keywords should be in lower case, is this true for town names etc. i.e. words that normally deserve a captial? Also what do you advise the best amount of keywords per page is? Trundar says it found 19 of his words, is this a good amount to add? thanks

Hi lee,

As I understand it, all keywords should be in lower case. You need to apply as many keywords as are suitable and relevant to your site. I don't think there is an optimal number.
