How Important Is The Meta Keyword Tag For SEO

If you are wondering if it is still worth using the meta keywords tag, then we recommend watching this video about How Important is the Meta Keyword Tag for SEO.

 
I want to talk to you about keywords Not necessarily the keyword research and all the fun stuff that goes with seo But keywords like the meta tags and the urls and stuff like that, so we'll dig in there and have a poke around and see what comes out of it.
 
One of the questions that we get on a regular basis is what do we do with the Meta Keywords tag? Do we still use it, should you still fill it out? It's an option inside of WordPress, it's an option pretty much every shopping cart that's out there. The answer is forget about it! It's just not used by Google, Bing or Yahoo anymore.
 
If you want to look at it going way back, in the day search engines did use it, people used to just stuff keywords in there. And you put in the same word three or four times obviously, it's going to move up the rankings. So in 2009 Google announced that they will no longer be using the keywords meta tag for indexing websites. So they were pretty smart about it, they saw what people were doing and they removed it.

if anything, it might now actually be used for a penalty purpose. If they notice that you've got certain keywords in your meta tag and those same keywords are repeated several times within the page and they can put two and two together, that you're trying to manipulate the search engines, that *could* raise up a flag, and get you some sort of penalty. So, keywords in the meta tag section, just forget about it! Stop putting your keywords in there! Just forget it!
