WHOA! hmmmmmmm, firstly, if you have alot of pages you could optimze different pages for differnt phrases and key word combinations.

>1) However, if I add in specific phrases would those

the phrases would, but only on an "exact phrase match", I dont thik a search for 'audio' will match well against a phrase of 'audio production' (if at all).

>Eg., "audio, post, production" as single words as against
>"audio post production" as a phrase
>(I would also include the single keywords of course).

by including the 'single keywords' you could be comming close to what would be considered spam (maybe).

>Eg., should I have a combination of words such as
>"audio, post, production, services, audio post,
>audio post production, audio post production service,
>post production services, post production,
>production services"

the word "post" could be considered spam in the above example

split them up onto different pages.........somewhere I lost what you said about MAX. the example you gave had commas between the words. Her advise was to leave out the commas (and it's working great for me). I believe she said "once you put in ONE comma the whole thing becomes phrases and not individual words" (or something like that).
