I have a silly question about meta keywords
« on: 02-03-2017, 20:56:11 »
Hi all. I am not new to SEO but something stopped me dead in my tracks.

I have come across a website that has no relevant keywords in their content, pretty much no back links and their content is mediocre at best.
Yet they continue to rank no matter which variation of the keywords used.
I checked their source page, and they are stuffing the meta keyword section with hundreds of keywords  (just a few main keywords with a heck load of variations to that keyword).
Now my question is, what am I missing? THey should not be ranking ..

I cant see any other way than age of the domain and the keyword stuffing in the meta

Any insight?

Google has mentioned they no longer utilize meta keyword tags in their algorithm for search rankings. Google did say that they will not guarantee any perminence in this decision in that there is no promise that it will never be used again, however, they did say it was highly unlikely they will use meta tags as a deciding factor in the future.

They are probably blocking backlink tools with robots.txt.

I don't have exact data but I haven't seen meta keywords effecting rankings either so I'd agree on that end.
