This article is from the Jobs FAQ, by Snoopy snoopy-at-sopwith.uucp.

12 misc.jobs: What is a "Keywords:" line, and how do I make one?

Usenet articles have two sections: a header and a body. The
header contains lines used by the news system itself, like
which newsgroups an article is posted to. The header comes first,
then comes a blank line, then the body of the article.

The Subject: line and the Keywords: line are both header lines.
Most/all news posting software will provide you with a Subject: line,
but not all will provide you with a Keywords: line, a Followup-To:
line, or a Reply-To: line.

The Keywords: line can hold important words or phrases that a reader
might want to search for, but which don't fit in the Subject:
line.

Your software should allow you to change header lines, and to add
additional header lines to your article before posting it.
The "rn" newsreader allows you to edit the entire article,
including both the header and the body, using your favorite text
editor, such as emacs. Other news software may have other methods.
I cannot assist you with other software. Read the documentation
and/or contact technical support. If your software does not allow
adding and editing header lines, you need better software. You
can obtain a variety of Usenet news software free of charge from a
number of anonymous uucp and anonymous ftp sites.
