Why, then, are we even mentioning trivial tidbits like meta keywords?
Because before you can put together a puzzle you have to find, identify and look at the pieces? And the meta keywords part was on the list of things I said to 'just toss' and not even think about, because it's not a 'piece of the puzzle'.
I think you're right though, sometimes the pieces are still looked at in isolation too much, even in this thread.
Interesting post Robert, especially the part about Google not seeming to be any farther ahead than they were a few years ago for some queries. Thanks.
