    i hope WP could add excerpt to
    <meta name="keywords" content="excerpt of every post" />
    in <head> area every post in order to bots can retrieve content clearly.

    That would be nice, but wouldn't the permalinks do a similar job of the actual page content?

    I thought google didn't look at the tags?

    I had the same thought the other day and mocked up a plugin that does this for the abstract, keywords and description metatags. It's very rough and could no doubt be optimised, I haven't tested it to any great extent but it works pretty well. Of course how useful it ends up being is debatable.

  5. I'm just using permalinks and Google is placing me in 1st or 2nd page for most of my search results. I doubt I could get more optimized that that.

    macmanx, i'm using permalink too. but wp's head is global. bots don't understand what the different between 0ne post and another post is. beacause every post hasnot description in head. using moisie's plugin, u'll get a good search result.

    Of how much use it will be is subject to debate, as far as I know most search engines don't look at keywords due to the fact they were are so heavily abused by people inputting keywords with no relation to content in order to increase the ranking. However, I don't remember reading anything that says they do any harm, unless of course your keywords have nothing to do with the content I suppose. As with anything it's up to you to use it or not.

  9. Quite often I find my individual posts, archives, categories, etc showing up in search results. Perhaps you lack the traffic to be completely crawled by search bots?
