PostHeaderIcon Google does not use the keywords meta tag in web ranking

In GoogleWebmasterHelp Youtube, Matt Cutts told you

Google does not use the keywords meta tag in web ranking, but should you use it?

Our answer is still ‘Yes!’. Why? Because the keywords meta tag is the standard and who knows if other search engines and directories do with the keywords meta tag. Even though Google does not use it in web ranking, but will they use it for other purposes?

Yes, we all know that Page Title, description tag, and H1, H2, H3, are important for you to get ahead of your competitors for your keywords. Let’s not be just lazy and give the keywords meta tags.


Matt says “other search engines might” use keywords meta tag and tells us pay attention to “meta description”.
