Hi All,
Can anyone point me to a link which lists which major search engines still look at keyword metatags.

The List, AFAIK:

#1 Inktomi (still gives a little weight to them)
#2 Google (reported here to accept a keyword if it is unique on the web, i.e. occurs *only once* in the keyword tag of *only* your one page, and nowhere else on the web)

Do sites like dogpile and other meta search engines use keywords and other meta data?

nakulgoyal,

Meta search engines just send your search request on to other primary search engines, and then sort the results returned by those engines. As such, they don't do anything with Web pages themselves, they only process the results from the primary engines.
