Get rid of that setting.  With MetaNames keywords you have to search using
-w keywords=(words to search) to find those words.  If you remove MetaNames
then Swish will just add the words to the normal index (not associating the
words with the Meta name).

Make sure you have OKNOMETA set in config.h, or indexing will fail.
OKNOMETA is se by default.

MetaNames allows you to specify areas of a document to search.
