So, we’ve established the fact that meta keywords are no longer important, and haven’t been for quite some time. After all, Google’s official publication on the Google Webmaster Central blog that they are not using meta keywords was published in 2009. Is there a chance that this has changed in the past ten years? No, not really. The same potential issues still exist, and implementing the use of meta keywords once again would not change that. So, just in case there’s any chance at all that meta keywords do still matter in the slightest, should we include them anyway just in case? Again, no, and here’s why. Google, Yahoo and Bing have all come out and said that they no longer take meta keywords into consideration. Bing has stated both that meta keywords will not help your website’s rankings, and the fact that you will only get faulted for trying to get away with keyword stuffing. So, absolutely no benefit there. What’s worse, is you can actually find another website’s meta keywords, and find exactly what that company is trying to use to send traffic to their website. This can only be harmful to your website, especially when it comes to your competitors.
