Which search engines pay the most attention to meta keywords? I have heard that Google doesnt pay as much attention as others like Yahoo.

Most SEO experts agree that Google doesn’t take in account the meta keyword tag for rankings;
Yahoo! and MSN both read the meta keywords and use them for rankings.

My advice is to take a few minutes and include them at least on
your main page, and a few important pages. If you do it properly (i.e.
accurate and no stuffing) it can’t possibly hurt.

Regards,

Patrick

Thanks for the reply, I was thinking this was a ghost town. :) I have been watching when the google spider comes crawling around, but it seems yahoo is viewing my site more than anything right now. Wasnt sure what was going on.

Was very busy on other stuff. Glad to know that you actually check your log files to see which spider views your website more often. I didn’t do that, but I think it is good when you try to figure out what changes to your website make your website more attractive to spiders. Smile

Search engine is a huge data base designed to provide deserved or demanded information to surfer when his query matches with the stored information in the data base.

Every search engine pay attention on keywords inluding google, but the most important which matter more to get the pagerank is the quality content.

I honestly think that google does give deal to meta keywords still yet the only big thing here is that there are a lot of competitors that makes everything hard enough to be found for just one simple keyword.

Most of the people optimizes their websites according to google rule and rarely by yahoo and bing. There are a lot ofvery well optimized meta keyword out there that are still not found by yahoo yet founded by google. I think everything varies upon the competition and sometimes by luck. :)

Just wanna share what I’ve heard that google nowadays don’t give much importance to meta tagging anymore. Your website would still get a good page rank without these but for me there’s nothing to lose if you still put meta tags on it anyway… so even google doesn’t want it, other search engines still considering it.

The meta keywords tag allows you to accommodate added argument for
crawler-based seek engines to basis forth with the blow of what you’ve
accounting on your site.insert abnormal words or synonyms into your
Meta keywords tags that you don’t in fact accept on the page itself.

Although the keywords meta tags are not an important factor for search
engines take into account when ranking sites should not be left out of
the page. Both the meta keywords tag and description tag contribute to
its goal of ranking in search engines. A keyword meta tag is supposed
to be brief and concise list of the most important of your page.

As per my knowledge, the meta keywords tag is where you list the keywords and keyword phrases that you’ve targeted for that page. Search engines, such as Google, gives lots of importance on the meta keywords tag to guess which keywords were relevant on a web page.

meta keywords tags are not a main element seek engines to rankingl sites, they should not be left off the page. Both the meta
keywords tag and the meta description tag accord to your seek engine

account of the a lot of important capacity of your page.

I know that google does not take attention on the meta keywords but other search engines take attention. So better way is to use meta keywords with your website once. All search engines take attention mostly on high quality contents.

Google still will pay particular interest to the Meta tag for their website location, while it is not nearly as essential to Google as it once was, it is still not a tag to remove.
