Hi,
Could anyone say if placing hundreds of key words on your web site pages actually helps with search engines? I noticed even a lot of very large companies use this practice.
The link below is one of the largest phone providers in Spain. They must be doing something right, their at the top end of Google. I know BV has an area to do this on page property’s. But is it the same.

Cheers.

Chris.

Blimey!

I sort of thought it wasn't such a good idea to have loads and loads of keywords but it doesn't seem to be doing them any harm does it?

Yes, you are right about the page properties - that's where you add them - seperated by a comma.

I'll wait and see if any of the SE experts have something to say on the subject....

That's a good article that exposes the myth of SEO....

Although it does not say anything new, it is interesting to hear it again from a different vantage point, I found it helpful.

Actually, it's not doing them any good either. SE's are getting smarter and smarter - and doing anything to try to "trick" them will eventually backfire on you. In case any of you aren't aware - even big companies get in trouble for "black hat" seo techniques. And that is definitely black hat and spamming, IMO.

BMW got banned from Google not long ago - and fixed their "errors" quickly to get re-listed - but believe me - they do find when websites do these things.

Matt Cutts is a guru from Google - he has a great blog if you ever want to read it. Here's a link to when they banned BMW: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/ramping-up-on-international-webspam/

So, if you think it looks bad or spammy - figure it will eventually find it's way to the se's black hat list and don't do it. And if it won't look good to your customers - who you need to do business - it's really a waste of valuable space.
