    Maximum Number of Keywords ?

    Hey...

    A friend of mine (who designed his own homemade jewelry business site) tells me that there is a maximum number of keyword characters that should be utilized under <meta name="keywords" content=. He tells me this number is 250 (characters); & that search engine spiders ignore everything beyond those initial 250.

    Is this true?

    Thanks,

    Here is a little homework you can brush up on. Also Google 'meta name keywords' and you will find a treasure trove.

    Most search engines, including Google, completely ignore the keyword meta tag.

    Google will not ignore the <meta name="description" content="description of your site"> though.
