Many webmasters still add the keywords meta tag to their web pages, hoping to win better ranks because they still assume search engines examine the tag but the reality is that Google and other major search engines such as Yahoo and Bing no longer use keywords tag.

Instead of adding that tag to your web pages, the better idea is to write unique content pages and try to cover the selected keywords. Writing naturally and with reasonable keyword densities can be a great idea, then use links to improve rankings of your site.

Well i would be interested to see the reference that says that google is no more interested in keyword tag. You still have to do that because that is the way you are guiding to robot but yes it may be not as important as it was before but still it is necessary to have it on your site

Agree with the fact that Google no longer takes meta keywords as a ranking signals. But I doubt that Yahoo still does.
Can you please share a link explaining Yahoo too ignores meta keywords?

It's true, search engine doesn't use the keywords meta tag in our web search ranking because search engines judged pages only on the content of web pages, but the keyword meta tag is useful the use of an HTTP response header.

Keyword meta tag can be used in article and classified but my suggestion is that you only post one keyword in blog, it is sufficient...

Yes true. Keywords meta tags has become an old tactic and nowadays people don't use it exactly as the copycat competitors are keen on looking to it.

I guess it has some importance to some extent and it gives some boost up in improving ranking. But now the updates have been changed and as we knew that it doesn't leave some more impression in improving and has minor impact on this.

Thanks for this great speech that instead of adding meta tag to any web pages, the better and effective idea for modern SEO is to write unique content and try to cover targeted keywords.
