Hello all,

I am a newbie at SEO. I was wondering if you put a long tail keyphrase in your meta tag. Will the search engine pick certain words out of the tag when searched for them or will I have to put a few different keywords with minute changes?

As far as I know the meta keyword tag is useless. I've built a few sites without them and can't see it hurting me.

By going through the post of Vanessa Fox- Product Manager in google group it confirm that unique Meta description tags for each page help google to determine the distinctiveness of a web. Hence it can not be useless;

Hi,

In my experience, Meta tags do help a lot for ranking of pages.
In highly competitive keywords and long disc keywords have higher rate of conversion. what I mean to say is that instead of ranking 10th for a generic short keyword, I always feel its better to rank first for a less conpetitive keyword which is very specific.
I prefer optimizing one keyword a page.

etechsupport,
I was talking about the meta keywords tag and not the meta description tag.
