Meta keyword spam – you don’t need meta keywords anymore folks!

meta keyword spam

I still get asked about the value of meta keywords, often called meta tags, all the time. If you thought you still need meta keywords placed in your site think again…

…these have been dead weight for years. Most of the sites I get asked to consult on have a moderate to high level of spammy meta keywords stuffed into the sites pages. Dont do it – you dont need them, they wont help you and with Google’s over optimisation algorithm change looming they may actually do you some harm.
