Is there such a thing as too many keywords?

I understand the value and importance of keywords, but I also loathe redundancy.

lol... should I just get over my loathing?

There is such a thing as redundant keywords, also irrelevant and inappropriate.
Look at those not the total count.

Thanks to everyone who answered my question!

There can be, especially if they're irrelevant - "cool", "awesome" etc.

I believe that search engine hits
add to your total count

You may loath repeats
that help you surmount
keywords are an important ally.

Here's a good example:

"audio, science, technology, fanatic, audiophile, help, me, please, velleman, kit"

When "amplifier, distortion" would have been much better.

Agreed with others;

Too many can be a tad ridiculous, but it depends on the error resiliency of the search mechanism; Does the search engine consider 'near' or phonetic spellings equal? I know its often advantageous to include common misspellings of unlikely words; like youtube and utube, yoo tube...

The risk of too many is that you get hits from where you shouldn't, which is good for you, bad for everyone else -- try to be comprehensive yet concise.
