Selecting Keywords...Why So Many??

edited November 2012 in Need Help
Ok I been reading a lot on here about how many users put in hundreds of keywords to get sites to post to. This is confusing to me.

In the keyword field I was putting in ONLY the keywords I wanted to rank for. Most times its about 5-10 keywords. If my keywords are based around say SEO then why would i use hundreds more then I am not trying to rank for?

Also in the Anchor text field I would select the box to use keywords as anchor and then dillute it a but by using generics at about 60% If I check the use keywords as anchors now it will use all those hundreds of keywords again I do not want to rank for.

So can anyone advise the reason for hundreds of keywords that I may never use?

    Keywords are used to find target sites for some engines like Blog Comments.Usually people use other keywords in the anchor texts that they want to improve the ranking for.
  • Ok so then the keywords are used generally to find sites to post to NOT per say to use to rank for unless I were to select the box,..I get it now
