Wright or Rong – Google knows

From the conversation I had with WebProWorld members, it seems that KEYWORDS Meta Tag has lost its past glory! Most of the members agreed to the fact that Search Engines are not paying much attention to KEYWORDS Meta Tag and some of the posters commented that they have stopped using Meta Keywords for their websites!

"I am also concerned that every search engine or other search application can index and rank my sites properly. I do not do SEO only for the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN and Ask. I try to satisfy all of them! Major and minor."
– by Webnauts

Sounds to be a good advice. Webnauts uses Meta Keywords; if it is not going to help, then it's not going to harm you too!
  • Keyword in URL
  • Keyword in Title
  • Keyword in Meta Description
– these three are most relevant according to today’s SEO workers. Logical enough. These three factors appear in the SERP and Search Engines highlight the keywords if they are found in these three parts of a web page. So better Description and better Title could help you rank higher. If your site URL does not contain your main keyword, don’t worry much. Work a bit on content and try to get some good back links or even internal links with the targeted keywords.

However, I will be using Meta Keywords for all my projects. You never know what Google has for you in its store!
