html meta keywords

Should this be included on every page or just the home page?

every page that you want the search engines to index.  these really should be tailored per page.  Although search engines now give them less weight then they used to a few years ago - now you also need proper keyword concentration in the page content.

Google says that if your keywords are not contained also in the content text of the page, they will be ignored.

Dave please elaborate on the content text of the page. Thanks for the responses.

Your 'keywords' should be visible / readable in your content when you look at your page the "View Source" of you web browser.  That does not include the 'meta' tag for 'keywords'.  The Googlebot does not read anything in images so text in images does not count for SEO.  Descriptive text in the 'alt' tag for the images is a good thing.

Can you provide a sample of the syntax with sample keywords?
