The <meta name="keywords"> tag contains multiple instances of a single term

WEB1035 - The <meta name="keywords"> tag contains multiple instances of a single term

Expression Studio 4.0

The <meta name="keywords"> tag should contain no more than one instance of the same term.

Explanation

A single keyword should not appear more than once inside the <meta name="keywords"> tag.

Details

In a keywords declaration, the comma character (,) delineates terms. Any word or phrase separated from other words or phrases by commas is considered a single term.

Example

The following is an example of a correctly formatted <title> tag, with <meta name="description"> and <meta name="keywords"> tags in the <head> tag section.

<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>
