    You can't. Besides, if they're hidden from the users then they're hidden from the search engine bots, too.

    you can however start the source off like 30 line breaks down so it doesn't appear immedeitly to the user(but they can scroll) and is completely fine with SE too. just a dumb little measure

    Also note that your meta keywords have essentially zero impact on your page's search ranking: it's the actual content along with the number of links to it from "quality" pages that are going to determine your ranking.

    I disagree NogDog on the idea that meta tags keywords don't make a difference in SEO. Sure there are other ways as well to rank up- content, title, img alt tags... But the meta tags do make a huge different in search ranking- I work for an ecommerce company and we try everything to see what helps the ranking. Google doesn't use keywords, but the rest do. Google does use meta description.

    I heard there's a way to hide to the hide keywords using ASP? Does anyone know anything about that?

    Also, does anyone know how to hide img alt tags?

    Thanks

    If you really want to go to the trouble you can serve different versions of the page depending on user-agent (server side programming). But that won't solve your "problem" of hiding content because the "cheaters" can fake their user agent and appear to be a known search engine spider.

    Get over it. If you don't want something seen, don't put it in the page and live with the possible consequences.
    ...but stupidity is terminal.
