Keyword - The words internet search
engines looks for based upon a search query. Most web pages have "hidden"
keywords. For example, go to view on your menu, then click on source. You should see a
"meta tag" listed called "keywords". This set of words instructs the
robot as to what keywords are relevant to this page. Spammers have taken
advantage of this meta tag over the years, thus making its relevance very low to
almost ignored by search engine robots.

from a mesophase pitch (derived from coal tar), it is heated at 2800 deg C to
form a graphite structure that can be machined into any shape desired.
