What is keyword definition and how it differs from search query?

Hi everyone. Please tell me the difference between what is keyword and just search query?

It's close terms, but difference is that search query is the phrase the user types in the search engine to get some info, while keywords is a set of words that describes the content of website to search engines and they are used in multiple search queries.

Here is good keywords example on cat's subject:
- toys for cat
- house for cat

while search queries might be pretty different and include all the variations of keywords, typos, tied with locations etc:
- how to make toys for cat yourself
- buy toys for cats in London
- what toys are best for cat
- house for cat design.
