i would greatly appreciate if anyone can tell me if i need to enter both the tags and the keywords, or one of either in my post before I published my article?
it seems that if i enter both tags and keywords (assuming both are the same), it shows up in the page source twice. at the moment, i only enter the keywords and leave the tags out. would this be ok or should i enter both?
thank you in advance n brgds,
ps – the website i am referring to is http://www.cheejunnyeow.com

Meta keywords are for SEO purposes, whereas tags are used as a way of grouping related content on your WordPress site. It is fine to have both keywords and tags included on a post or page. Oftentimes the tags that you choose for a post are very similar to the keywords, this is why there is a setting in All in One SEO Pack Keyword Settings that allows you to use the tags for a post as keywords for that post.
Here is the documentation for keyword settings in All in One SEO Pack.

I’m green to SEO and confused by your response above.
Are keywords and meta keywords synonymous?
If so is Matt Cutts saying Keywords are irrelevant?
I’m hearing something about H1 tags as providing significance for posts.
Do I manually enter these or does SEO Pro have a feature to do this?
I’m finding that the only keyword I currently am showing for is my home page settings – home title.
Is there more I can be doing with this plugin?

Yes, Matt Cutts is saying that keywords (or meta keywords) are irrelevant and I should have explained that in my first response. You can still use the keyword settings in All in One SEO Pack if you wish and it will not negatively affect your ranking, the keywords just won’t be taken into consideration when Google crawls your site.
The h tags (header or head tags) are hierarchical, going from h1 – h6 with h1 being the most important and h6 the least important. The h1 tag is traditionally used for for the title of a page or post and should be used only once per page. The h2 tag is for secondary titles, h3 for subcategories of a secondary title, and so on. WordPress has a feature for adding h tags to your posts, you can find it when you are writing a post in the visual editor, the drop down menu that says Paragraph will have formatting options including 6 Heading options. Adding one of these Heading options to a title or subtitle will add the h tags to your html, which you can see when you switch from the visual editor to the text editor.
We have documentation on our site which describes the different items in All in One SEO Pack, I linked the keyword settings article above but will provide a link to all of the documentation below. If you have any questions about those articles please feel free to post them so you can get more information about what All in One SEO Pack can do for your site.
