WEB1033 - The <meta name="keywords"> tag should be declared only once in a page
<meta name="keywords"> tag should occur only once in a page.
If more than one
<meta name="keywords"> tag is defined in a page, search engines will analyze only one of them.
If there is more than one
<meta name="keywords"> tag inside the
<head> tag section of a page, search engines may arbitrarily decide which of the
<meta name="keywords"> tags is the most relevant in the search-engine results. This reduces the page relevancy for a keyword search and lowers the search-engine ranking of the page. Additionally, the site developer loses some degree of control over what the page should be targeted for.
The following example shows correctly formatted
<meta name="description"> and
<meta name="keywords"> tags; "Proseware," "Proseware applications," "Proseware utilities," "Proseware tools," and "Proseware server tools" are treated as distinct terms.
<head> <title>Contact Proseware, Inc.</title> <meta name="description" content="Contact information for Proseware, Inc., including addresses, phone numbers, and email"/> <meta name="keywords" content="Proseware,Proseware applications,Proseware utilities,Proseware tools,Proseware server tools"/> </head>
