What is a "Poison Keyword?"

I just updated my meta tags on my new forum site and did a few meta tag analyzations.

The analyzers give me a warning saying something like, "Warning Poision keyword: Your page has the word "forum" and this is a poison keyword.

Anyone??

The web page contain poison keywords.
The word(s) 'forum' are poison keywords.

I've never really bought into the whole "poisen keyword" deal. Tons of forums have the word forum in the descrption/title and have no issues.

Look at the meta tags/title on this page for a good example.

Found this on google...
http://www.searchengineworld.com/new...ison_words.htm

I agree... seems like a made up term to scare off certain words. (why I don't know... leave that to the SEO pros) There are alot of people talking on forums about this... most common complaints I'm seeing are "Search Engines" and "Forums" as the bad words... I don't see how either of those can hurt you.

If they wanted to cause issues because of these words... why don't they just consider them "stopwords"... then no one would ever have to worry about them.

"Poison words" - all hype/ myth, IMO. We had a discussion of them here before.

I agree with the consensus here: there is no evidence of poison words being used by any of the major search engines.

AdSense Anecdote:

I had a few too many choice vulgarity on my website. AdSense was showing nothing but PSAs. Some editing to go from R to PG-13, voila, ads showed up.

Your mileage may vary.

Lightbulb Why not an alternative?

I've found an alternative for my website :

I've changed «Forum» for «Agora».

I know that it doesn't fit for everyone, but to me, I even prefer this name!

Is this a common word in english language?

Sorry for the link, I didn't take time to read your «welcome pages»...
But, honestly, 50 posts! Why cut the links? Cut the «New Member Introductions»! The problem seems to be there!

O.K. I shut off, I'm afraid to be banned...
