Question: Is there a limit on Metatag keywords that you should look out for?
Answer: OK, meta tags cause a lot of confusion. FIRST, the META KEYWORDS tag is IGNORED. Does NOT matter. You don’t need to use it. SECOND, the TITLE tag IS technically a META TAG and it is huge. The No. 1 tag for SEO. The character limit is about 69 visible characters; about 80 indexed.
Third, the META DESCRIPTION tag will become your description on Google about 90% of the time IF it contains the same keywords that the user types in. So use that one as well. No other META tags matter.
