    Hello,

    i would like to know if meta keyword is imporant ?
    i know a website with the same niche that i am using and i check that site coding there wasn't any keyword there, but still that site is on first page and its rank is above my site rank .
    SEMrush
    second thing i notice that google search engine only show description with site name so how come they read the keyword ?

    No The Meta keywords is not important factor anymore. But still people use this tag because of tell to google that this page is related about these tags.

    What iamolm said is what I was practically going to say and he is correct. It's not that important anymore.

    So why many sites including some big sites still using keywords, maybe the keywords are important to other search engines or something?

    I think meta keywords are still important factors for onpage optimization, you may find some sites ranking above you without meta tags ......... but it is not enough to proof that meta tag not important so far, may be there are some other off page factors working there for rank better for these particular sites.

    Yes! we can easily say meta tags are not that much important for SEO. Because i have started my blogging in 2 months before and i have never used tags in my website but even Google indexed my pages very quickly.

    1. Meta keywords are not important anymore. It will help competitors to get your targeted keywords. So I recommend to avoid using it. But meta description is still important to increase click rate of your Google listing.

    Meta tag is not important now. but people are using it coz when we search any thing in Google then title tag will show on top most and in the inner one you can see description in organic search and people who use search engine find easy to go with the site which he is looking for. that's why most top company use it.
    Thanks

    As per me this is very usefull to improve alexa yesterday i m using this and myalexa goes down and i m getting visitors from google search engine by using this code.
    <title></title>
    <meta name="description" content="" >
    <meta name="keywords" content="">
    <meta name="revisit-after" content="3 Days">
    <meta name="robots" content="all">
    <meta name="googlebot" content="index, follow">
    <meta name="robots" content="index, follow">
    <meta name="rating" content="General">
    <meta name="distribution" content="global">
    <meta name="author" content="">
    Code (markup):
    and for adsense meta tags helps to getting content related ads.

    Meta keyword has lost its effectiveness. People do key word staffing, for this the effectiveness is about zero.

    Yes, Meta Keyword Tag is still important. You can do the experiment by yourself. Try one without the Meta Keyword Tag & see the result.
