    Can anybody help me to sort out how many keywords use in keyword meta tag, too much will treat as SPAM, right ?

    Well I dont think theres a "best" number but its somewhere around 200 characters. Just write something that explains your page with your keywords that will want ppl to click on it. (this product is (w/e) come see why) or something liek that.

    i normally use 3 - 5 keyword phrases "i sell widgets" & "buy widgets here" etc, 30 keywords in my opinion is spammy.

    I think 30 keywords are really spammy, you should use about 10-15. :)

    I have seen some sites have them around 300 characters too, with no probs.
    If you don't repeat the same words, I think 200-250 characters are good enough, to be on the safer side.
    Keep the important ones at start in the sequence.

    I have seen many sites with lots of keywords stuffed in their keywords meta tag but I wouldnt recommend this practice to new sites.

    About 30 words is good, but like kianah said, don't use the same keyword multiple times.

    I would limit it to under 10 or less than 15 MAX. What you should concentrate on should be on description meta tag instead.

    20-30 keywords and 150-200 characters.This is 100% true :)

    And you should use the main keyword twice

    I heard that Google don't care the keywords in meta tag.
    but if you want to put keywords in meta tag 200-250 is still ok :D

    Not so true...

    The truth is 80-150 characters for meta desription and meta keywords. And 80 characters (max) for <title>

    It's an optimum variant ;)

    believe it or not i got some pages WITHOUT keywords meta tag that rank better than optimized ones. and i mean, competition ones.
    they optimized their keywords meta tag, "keyword a " "keyword b" etc etc and they rank poorly... guess the secret is Title-Description... good for me! :)

    I think that 20-30 is the maximum you should make.
