As can be seen, nearly the entire alphabet has been ignored. A proper list
should be selected from all letters of the alphabet. As a consequence of this
poor ordering, the keywords will generally not be especially relevant to the
article, except by the chance that the most relevant links occur between "a" and
"d" or so. This undoubtably greatly skews search engine results (thus "major"
Most of the keywords have only a tenuous connection to the article anyway. The
keywords for ''Wikipedia'' include three relevant keywords ([[Britannica]],
[[Bomis]], and [[copyleft]]), a misrepresentation ([[CamelCase]]), some terms of
vague significance ([[anarchism]], [[As We May Think]], [[Clifford Adams]], and

Clearly this is an area with much room for improvement.

Perhaps it would make more sense just to use the first links in the order they
appear on the page: links in the introductory paragraph of an article are more
likely to be relevant to the topic of the article. This would certainly be easy
enough: select first X internal links from the page; alphabetise; shove in the
Obsoleted; link-based meta keywords have been removed per bug 19761.
