Part of why you didn't get too many answers is because keeper leagues vary wildly in how they conduct their business. But at the heart of it, it is a system that allows teams to "protect" 1 or more players from year to year, rather than throwing those players back into the draft pool.
- Some keeper leagues allow each manager to protect a fixed number of players i.e. "everybody declare with 5 guys you are keeping"
- Some keeper leagues allow each manager to protect a variable number of players. This usually has some sort of "cost" system in play; a salary cap you have to work within, forfeiting draft picks to keep players, something along those lines.
- At the extreme would by dynasty leagues, where every manager protects all their players from year to year.
I expect others could further clarify or disagree, but pretty much any format where some of the players don't go back into the draft could be called a keeper league.
Keeper leagues allow you to "Keep" or carry over a predefined # of player (sometimes even less) for the next season
