I'm not sure I follow you here. The function org-search-view (C-c a s)
searches all org-agenda files for a regexp and/or word (or as Stephan
pointed out searches the current file with a restriction) and returns a
list of entry headings that contains that keyword. AFAICT, this is the
behavior the OP was looking for:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Search words: keyword2
Press `[', `]' to add/sub word, `{', `}' to add/sub regexp, `C-u r' to edit
  test:       jones2000
  test:       jones2007
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

One more consideration: If the OP wants genuine tag functionality,
perhaps it would be better to add the keywords as tags. E.g.,

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
** jones2000                                              :keyword1:keyword2:
blah blah
** jones2007                                                       :keyword2:
blah blah
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
