Question: Does Google understand the word ‘and’ or are you better to list your words separated with commas: Mining and resources recruitment OR mining recruitment, resources recruitment
Answer: Google largely ignores words like ‘and’ so in general don’t worry about them. That said, if your customers might use them, then use them. Always try to mimic as exactly as possible the searches used by customers.
Commas and the | character are generally not a good idea. People do not search with them. Mimic the way the people search, but finding those high volume, high value searches and trying to identify the most common search words and phrases. Weave these into your page tags.
