Greetings -

I'm sure this is an easy question, but I can't seem to find a direct answer simply searching the net...

What is the purpose of KEYWORDS entered in to the properties of a Word document?

I was hoping that it served the same purpose as using keywords on a web page, making it easier for a user to find a page/document.

This is what I'm trying to accomplish. My company has an Intranet site which I maintain, we would like to add our policies and procedures to this site, giving all employees easy access to these documents.

I have implemented a search engine on the site, allowing users to search the entire site, however in testing it's not returning the kind of results I'm looking for.

For example: one of the policies deals with the use of portable heaters, "Usage of Portable Heating Devices." Now, if I do a search on the site for any one of the words in the title or in the document it will find it, but if I search for any variation of a word such as "heater," which by the way is also not a word in the document, it does not return a result.

To try to solve this problem, I tried using KEYWORDS, adding words such as heat, heater and a few others relating to the topic. Trying to use words that might make for a logical search but are not found in the document. As you might guess this is not working in the way that I thought it might.

Can someone clarify the use of KEYWORDS and maybe offer a suggestion on how I might be able to get better search results.

Thank you much!
Jason
