    I was thinking the other days at the following thing: how long should a meta description be? And how many keywords should be inserted in a blogs' or sites' template code? I've heard that too many KWs and a very long meta description aren't actually recommended. So you guys have any ideas about this issue? :)

    I read somewhere that it doesnt matter how long it is but google will only read the first 20 words or something like that, so you need to get your keywords in them first 20 words. I would say 3 is the most keywords you really want to use and make sure they make sense in a good sentence too .

    I was talking about the keywords you put in your blogs'/websites' template code, in the "keywords" tag :)

    I understand. So basically, you have to think at an optimum meta description and keywords, before inserting them in your template's code, am I right? :)

    actually, your description tag should not be too long...although there is no limit yet...but it should be concise and simple but interesting which can give you more clicks.

    Buy, Discounts, Gifts, Free are some of the keywords which really helps in search engines.

    There's no general consensus as to how many there should be. Usually for me, I'll use 6 keywords the most while I try to keep the description as short as possible (less than 10 words) utilizing some of the keywords which I use earlier.
