clarification on how the meta keywords editor works (2 posts)

    In the Meta Keywords Editor module, there are a series of check boxes. I'm not entirely sure what this process is doing (I'm a dummy, I know - stick with me here).

    Next to Pages and Media, there is a check box, and a number field. I'm assuming if I check the box and put "10" in the field, I'm telling the plugin to dynamically find the 10 most commonly-used words on a specific page or media file to list as the meta keywords content... is that correct?

    Subsequently, next to "POSTS" there are several options. If I check Categories, Post Tags, Post Format Archives, and any additional taxonomies, then check the first box and enter "10" again, ... am I telling the plugin to dynamically find the 10 most commonly-used words on those pages to list as the meta keywords content?

    In otherwords, if I go to to the first page in my "Cars" category archive, will the plugin look through the archive, find the most used words (say, Chevy, Ford, Honda, 4WD, etc.) and use those as the meta keywords to the category...?

    Yes, so a page's meta keywords will be the 10 most common words on that page, and an attachment's meta keywords will be the 10 most common words in the text associated with that attachment.

    If I check Categories, Post Tags, Post Format Archives, and any additional taxonomies, then check the first box and enter "10" again, ... am I telling the plugin to dynamically find the 10 most commonly-used words on those pages to list as the meta keywords content?

    That section controls what keywords are auto-generated for your posts (not your category/tag/format/term archives -- as of version 6.1, SEO Ultimate doesn't support keyword auto-generation for those archives)

    Let's say you have a post in the "News" category, with "Apple" and "Microsoft" tags, with the "Aside" post format. If you check the options you listed, then your post's meta keywords will look like this:

    news,apple,microsoft,aside,word1,word2,word3,...

    ...where "word1," "word2," etc. are the 10 most common words in your post.
