One huge mistake I see all time is repeated keywords in keyword tag. Here is an example: shoes, brown shoes, blue shoes, and red shoes. There are two things wrong here, Do you know what it is? First, of all, use of word “and” is not needed. This is called a stop word. Search engines ignore these type of words. Some common stop words are and, the, because, this, that and there. The second thing wrong with keywords is word “shoes”. It is repeated four times. You do not need to repeat shoes. The corrected keywords should read; shoes, brown, blue, red. The search engine will know you are offering shoes and will match color with word shoe. Repeating “shoes” will just penalize your site.
One final tip on using keywords. Make sure you use your top keywords in TITLE of your site as well as in description tag. Do not load title with keywords. These are first places engines will scan. Your description tag is usual what is displayed on search engines when relevant keywords are typed in. So, be sure they are there. Do not just type in key word phrases. No one will know what your site is about. What is point of coming up in rank if no one understand description.
