Administrate? I'd say you are already using jargon (well, common usage
maybe, not jargon exactly). People do this all the time for SEO; but
they have an overriding commercial interest in getting hits. I guess it
just comes down to how motivated you are to have people find your site
with that keyword.

Ask him where in the app does he see the term Admin?
Tell your developer: "The index also doesn't include the words
'Frisbee,' 'stochaic,' and 'cromulent' - so what's your point?"
