This PHP class is based in large part on the "Automatic Keyword Generator" class by Ver Pangonilo with additional improvements, among them being better word segmentation and ability to handle multibyte strings.

This class automatically generates META Keywords for your web pages based on the contents of a text string. This eliminates the tedious process of thinking what the best keywords are. The main principle of this method is the number of occurrences of single words or multiple words in a text string.

The string supplied to this class may contain HTML tags and punctuations. Advantage is taken from the presence of line breaks and punctuations to better guess the best multiple word keyphrases.

This Multibyte Keyword Generator will automatically create single word keywords, 2-word and 3-word keyphrases. All keywords and keyphrases are filtered to remove common (useless) words. Common words are defined within the class and can be associated with specific language.

This class is highly configurable. One can use minimal settings and rely on defaults. Alternatively, one can choose to obtain ANY combination of final result: 1-word keywords, 2-word keyphrases, 3-word keyphrases. Each option can be disabled. For example, one can configure this class to obtain only 1-word keywords, or only 2-word keyphrases, or only 3-word keyphrases, or all, or any combination.

This class is capable of handling multilingual texts and multibyte strings.

This class is capable of handling all European languages and is likely to handle many others as well. You may need to define common (useless) words for your own language if not already part of this class.
