What is Keyword? Definition and Meaning

Whenever we go to search engine and write down our required topic within two or three words these topic words is called Keywords.A Keyword is a word or phrase - typically a phrase of two or three words - which has been identified as one which potential customers use when they are searching the internet. A keyword is generally a word or phrase that is a topic of significance. Searchers use keywords as a way to identify and verbalize their problem or topic in which they're looking for more information. Businesses create content around relevant topics to their business which helps them rank and be the content in which searchers find.
If we want to point out so the points are:
•A word that serves as a key to a code or cipher.
•A significant or descriptive word.
•A word used as a reference point for finding other words or information.
However In text editing and database management systems, a keyword is an index entry that identifies a specific record or document.
In programming, a keyword is a word that is reserved by a program because the word has a special meaning. A word used by a search engine in its search for relevant Web pages.
