Repetition in meta keywords

Q: Is it true that you should not include the same word in your meta keywords more than twice? ex: Hawaii Travel, Hawaii Tours, Hawaii Hotels, Hawaii Lodging

A: I would try to avoid much repetition in the meta keywords. But there is no hard and fast rule about this. I would instead choose to formulate my meta keywords tag as follows: Hawaii, Travel, Tours, Hotels, Lodging. If the word is repeated on its own rather than part of a phrase, then that definitely looks spammy. For example: Hawaii, Hawaii, Hawaii.
