Keywords in meta tags?
« on: 05-17-2010, 10:39:48 »
 :P Hello,

I'm new and forgot to post an introduction before posting a few replies sorry boarders don't penalize me to bad.

I just had a quick question regarding meta tag keywords. I've been looking into seo/sem optimization for awhile now and something thats got my head spinning a little is I keep hearing that keyword usage in meta tags arn't as effective as they use to be and don't really influence a site's performance. However I should focus more on title tag and content keywords.

A few comments regarding this subject would be very helpful.

Yes, you are right.
Meta tags are not important now days (except description).
Focus on title, headings and content keywords (key-phrases).

I know meta tags may not be that important but someone told me there good for helping adsense choose better ads. i.e. if you put in high paying keywords and your site is  releated to that niche, they're more likely to show up ? Any truth in that ? Or is it a Myth lol

The biggest problem with putting a lot of keywords in your meta tags is that google will only read so much of your page and if you have too many keywords then google won't read them it they are too similar and can be summed up by another one.

I think, nowadays if we talk about meta tags; title and description are very important and needs to be created very well. Title and description must be analyzed and customized after proper competitor website analysis.

Now the meta keywords are less important, like the other users says title and descriptios have more relevance in the SEO for google, actually there are rumors that say google dons´t read the keywords, but other search engines continue reading this.

I usually put 10 words, it take a few time and even if this doesn´t have relevance in google, this would not harm the SEO of the web, but you have to chose wisely the keywords you want to use, but don´t waste much time with this.

<head>
<title>Welcome To Shoe Central!</title>
<meta name=”description” content=”All the best prices on shoes!” />
<meta name=”robots” content=”noodp” />
<meta name=”keywords” content=”shoe, shoes, shoee, shos, footwear” />
</head>


Title: The text here becomes the title that is shown in search engine listings, in most cases.
Description: The text here is text that search engines sometimes use as a description for your web page when listing it (a meta tag lesson for another time).
Robots: This particular tag is configured to ensure that the page isn’t described using the a description that the Open Directory might have for it (Meta Robots Tag 101 explains this more).
 Keywords: This tag is the topic of this article, so read on!

Ranking high in Google in 2016 has far more to do with relevanxe and reputation of high-quality content, user satisfaction and popularity than meta tag optimization.
Meta tags do not noticeably where a page ranks in Google, in a positive way.
Meta tags, when used properly can still be useful in a number of areas outside just ranking pages. Abuse them, and you might  fall foul of Google's punitive quality algorithms.
