How long will be good for Keywords Meta?
Keywords Meta

 5:19 am on Apr 20, 2010 (gmt 0)

By checking many websites's source file, I found some sites' keywords meta are extremely long, even over 30 words, and another sits' keywords meta only have one or two word.

I wonder how many words in the KWs meta will be perfect?and how search engines treat different length of meta words?

its easy to understand how SE view meta keywords - they ignore them, they haven't been used for a long time so I wouldn't get concerned over the length in fact I've added any meta keywords onto sites for a good few years

So... keywords don't matter any more? but I think search engine spiders will takes them very seriouly.

I think the big 3 google, yahoo & msn (bing) place very little weight or next to no weight on the meta keyword tag or the ammount of keywords placed in it. I personally use it as a reference for my keyword list for each page on a site.
it doesn't help but it wont hurt either to have it.

I haven't used meta keywords in years.

The meta description, however, is *vital* - especially when it shows as the text snippet in SERPs.

Keyword Meta tag does not impact in Google's search engine ranking. Having a good Title and Meta Description Tag is more imperative, nevertheless it would not be totally wrong to have the meta keywords in place, just as a routine.

Yes, the meta is not very important factor, however I found that the best to put 4-6 meta keywords in meta description (related keywords of course :) )

The internet is filled with people who speak different languages; therefore it is imperative to know how to optimize a site that is not drafted in English. For sites that are not written in the English language, you should include a Meta tag for languages. This improves your search engine optimization since engine spiders will understand the language that the website is written in.

Other than optimizing your major keyword phrases, you should also choose secondary keywords to work on. Remember not to use your secondary keyword too much otherwise you will end up overshadowing your primary keyword thus affect your search engine optimization marketing strategy. The recommended percentage for secondary keywords should be between 1 and 2 of the body content.
