I don't go tag crazy so no idea but I've seen videos with over 20 lines of tags.

The <media:keywords> element value has a maximum length of 500 bytes, not 120 characters as previously reported. In addition, a keyword may not be longer than 30 bytes. Previously, a single keyword could not be longer than 25 characters. The element definition has also been updated to explain that when the API server calculates the length of a multi-word keyword, it counts spaces as well as quotes, which are inferred to surround any multi-word keyword.
This is what I found from google, but no idea what this means. 500 bytes?

How much is 500 bytes in characters/words ?

Any idea??

Found it... 500 bytes = 500 characters using the converter found at Character To Byte Converter

Weird mathematics...
