Links with commas skew meta keywords
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: qleah

An article with links to (for example) [[Rex, North Carolina]] and [[North
Carolina]] may have a poorly optimized keyword list, as a link containing commas
is treated by the parser as a single keyword, rather than the list of keywords
it will be interpreted as. If an article links to the individual terms as well
as the comma list, this may cause keywords to be duplicated (necessarily
replacing more valuable terms):

<meta name="KEYWORDS" content="Dublin Core,Google,GFDL,Meta tag,[[North
Carolina]],Wiki,Yahoo,Toad,Spamdexing,[[Rex, North Carolina]]" />

bzimport set Reference to bz611.

Not going to fix that one.
They just add up and no keyword is lost. Indeed, having a [[foo, bar]] link, the
parser will generate a list of 11 keywords.
