This .desktop file does either not contain a "Keywords" entry or it does not contain any keywords not already present in the "Name" or "GenericName" entries.

.desktop files are organized in key/value pairs (similar to .ini files). "Keywords" is the name of the entry/key in the .desktop file containing keywords relevant for this .desktop file.

The desktop-file-validate tool in the desktop-file-utils package is useful for checking the syntax of desktop entries.
