Anyone who says the keywords meta tag is dead is flat wrong. As I was doing some key phrase checks today, I see my favorite-photo-spam-site-to-hate is audaciously using keyword to great success. The term I searched for produced their site as the #1 result, but the resulting page contained ZERO occurrences of ANY content for that term. However, the term is the first entry in their meta keywords tag (15 keywords total).
Another #1 result on Google that is a clean miss. No improvements on my position, traffic or conversions. Not even PPC is producing traffic.
