Adding a meta keywords tag is very similar to adding a meta description. You will need to place the meta keywords tag within the <head></head> tags of your website's HTML code. If you missed our previous article, please see the Adding a Meta Description Tag tutorial.

<meta name="keywords" content="enter your keywords here" />

Just as we mentioned in the previous article, the meta keywords tag in self closing and requires the /> at the end to terminate the tag. Remember to replace the "enter your keywords here" with your actual keywords and phrases. Keywords are to be separated with a comma and will look something like this:

<meta name="keywords" content="web hosting, webhosting, website hosting, web site hosting, inmotion, inmotion hosting, inmotionhosting" />

Keywords, just like the description should be concise and accurate. It's best practice not to "stuff" keywords and have a large number in your tag. Typically, you'll want to limit them to 10 or less in each webpage.  For more information on this course please visit Meta Tags Explained.
