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.

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.

I see that I am not communicating.  For Google, the important words are the words in your text on your web page.  The keywords in a 'meta' mean almost nothing to them anymore.  The reason for that is people 'stuff' lots of words there that don't really have anything to do with the content of their web site.

Here's what Google has to say about SEO along with links to their other pages about the subject:  https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/35291?hl=en
