I believe LL uses lazy search for the search query, that being

#Pseudo-code warning, this does not work and doesn't append properly
sqlQuery = "select * from secondlife.parcels like "for i in userInput.split(" "): sqlQuery = sqlQuery + "desc=\"%" + sqlEscape(i) + "%\" and"

As such, commas are not nessessry(You can add them if you want though), lowercase/uppercase does not matter either.

EG: A search for "beautiful cat" would bring up a parcel/region with this description:

a beautiful landscape for anyone to enjoykeywords: CAT LAND PIE KEYWORDS EXAMPLE

 For the most part though, keywords are left in lower case as a precaution(Should LL introduce case sensitive search), because no one really capitalizes their search queries.

I find that neophytes in business often pack their search description with an unreadable mess that has no space, no commas, or if it does have commas, no space and lots of repetition with slightly changed words.

This *might* work with faceless mechanical algorithms but I don't think so.

Real people look at search results, no matter how they are served out. They don't like reading a mess of smushed words and repetitive terms with no space.

Writing a well-composed pleasant and short sentence is more attractive to them. I think what's more important than the "right" SEO method is finding a search term that is really unique that describes your product and that has less competition in search but still recalled by a searcher, i.e. jacuzzi instead of hot tub.

Also the picture in the search ad is likely even more important than the words.
