Question: If I click on page source on my website I see Meta name keywords. The meta does not help anything correct? How should it read?
Answer: The META KEYWORDS tag is IGNORED by Google. Google and Bing have both publically announced that they ignore this tag. So should you use it? I use it as a NOTE TO MYSELF about what a page targets. I also use it to reverse engineer what other people are thinking in terms of their keywords. But it has zero impact on SEO per se.
