How do you add key words ? Answered

I have a couple of instructables to publish ' but it constantly asks me to enter key words.
I have entered key words but can't publish.
this is the reason i don't do any instructables any more.

Simple: separate, them, with, commas, like, this.

Maybe the problem is quite simple as you said you entered keywords.
Here is how it works:
Enter the first keyword add a comma and then the next keyword, another comma after the last keyword.
So instead of "best instructable for using a lawn mower" you use "best, instructable, for, lawn mover, "

Things like "lawn mover" can be used as one term if not seperated by a comma.
When done simply press enter and your Ible should publish.
