Subject: Guidelines for using <meta ...>


I was wondering if someone could point me at a working document that
describes how to use <meta name="keywords" content="..."> for instance.
I'm interested in knowing how I can structure my documents to get
more intelligent matches with search engines.

For instance, what is a reasonable number of keywords to put for a
short page?  Also, what delimiter is used between words and/or
phrases in the keyword section?  Is order important?

Please reply directly.
