Jerome’s Keywords Plugin is a plugin for WordPress 1.5 to tag your posts with relevant keywords. The plugin lets you to use these keywords in several ways:

  1. Automatically add them to your page header: e.g. <meta name=”keywords” content=”list of page keywords”>.
  2. Implements Technorati tags. Normally if you’re indexed with Technorati they’ll pick up only your categories as tags – this plugin allows all your keywords to show up in Technorati’s tag pages too.
  3. Integrates with WordPress’ search feature. Readers can click on a post’s keyword/tag link to see other posts with the same tag. It’s another simple but effective way of letting users find content that interests them.
