    meta name="keywords" still in use?

    So what's the deal with the keywords meta?

    Should I bother to use it or have search engines already gotten smart enough to ignore it (as they should)?

    Some do still use it but some also ignore it.
    I put them in anyway.

    Yes, good idea to still use the KW tag but they will mainly only help if the KW are also in plain text on the page.

    If META kewyords are included in Googles search engine algorithm, than it must be the bottom last and least amount of a factor possible.

    Now in search engines like Yahoo and MSN and others it still plays a little role. The tiniest boost might be all you need to jump ahead of your competitor. Add'em.

    OK then I will put my keywords just in case. It's not that hard. I should have a list with the keywords that I'm trying to target anyways.

    Thanks.

    Although I still think it's stupid for a search engine to take them into consideration.
