LIS 677 - Sample Keyword Meta Tag Values

Here are some random examples of sets of keywords assigned to Web pages by their authors. Note the vast differences in exhaustivity. A number of authors insert multiple variants of the same term because of the lack of a controlled vocabulary, and sometimes because they think it will improve the page's ranking. Most general Web search engines now ignore keywords because of past abuses ("spamdexing" or "word stuffing").
