Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a tool used to increase a web page's likelihood of appearing in a web search. When writing keywords with SEO in mind, you are essentially trying to predict what others might plug into a search engine to find an article. 

When writing an article for Metropolitan State's website, there are a few given keywords that should be used for each article: "Metropolitan State University" and "Metropolitan State". Consider authors, participants, locations, and so on, when choosing keywords. Most keywords will vary depending on the content of each specific article.
