I just have a quick question about keywords:
For example, I write an article entitled: Choosing a dog name
I add the keywords: Dog, Dog Names, Choosing a Dog name
Everyone knows that the SE's see repeated keywords as spam (for example, "dog names, dog names, dog names, dog names").
As you can see in the keywords that I chose, "dog" appears 3 times.
Will the search engines be suspicious since I repeated this keyword 3 times?
Thanks in advance,

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Repetition in the keywords meta tag is to be expected, but as modern search engines ignore them anyway it's kind of irrelevant.
Search engines will use the meta description.
Google Webmaster Tools has a Content Analysis module which will show you what Google thinks of your meta descriptions.
That is kind of amusing to me. I have a question too, since this thread is already posted.
How should I put in my keywords with the SEO all-in-one tool on wordpress? Would doing something like what gameover did be OK?
I have another question about keywords that I thought I would post here instead of starting a new thread.
Suppose I wanted to target "choosing a fish tank" and "choosing fish tank", what keywords would I use? Are they to similar to use both?
Most search engines will skip over certain words in search queries anyhow, such as "a", "the", etc. So really you could just target the latter "choosing fish tank" and it should technically produce results for both of your terms. The only time a difference would be distinguished is if the searcher uses quotes which actually doesn't happen much.
