    You are looking for search engine optimisation.

    Generally speaking you need to have some clear and concise content which is rich in key words. You then want plenty of websites with links to yours.

    Perhaps here is the best place to start.

    Yes, you have far to many. You should have around 5 key words or phrases. Bed is mentioned so many times that you are risking a penalty from Google.

    Is it better to write this

    <meta NAME="keywords" CONTENT="cabinet systems, wallbed, wall bed, wall beds tulsa, wallbed tulsa, wall bed tulsa, broken arrow, owasso, sand springs, bixby, jenks, oklahoma, murphy bed, garage cabinets, garage storage systems, garage remodel, workbench, storage cabinets, ">

    Also would it be better to write a sentence on the homepage describing the company using same keywords


    Thanks

    If you are looking for the ability for local search, I don't think Oklahoma will do it. You will want to include the areas you sell or market in.

    As for using the same keywords for your description, you should have a keyphrase that covers the basics of those keywords.
    Your home page content doesn't need to be indentical, but it does need to be relevant.

    Hope that helps. Good luck........

    Major search engines don't put to much value on meta keywords as YOU have the ability to manupulate them. Nevertheless, I agree, you have way to many. You might run the risk of triggering google "spam" filters.
