The news came during the Ask The Search Engines session at SMX East in New York today. The search engines were all asked about their support of the tag. Moderator Danny Sullivan noted that only Yahoo provided support of the tag — prompting Cris Pierry, senior director of search at Yahoo, to announce that support actually had been ended unannounced “several” months ago.
What do you guys think?
I was sitting in the session and Cris from Yahoo was like, oh, btw, we don't use the meta keywords tag anymore either.
Danny and I were like, what?! When did this happen? He said a few months ago. Danny asked him, why didn't you let us know. He shrugged his shoulders.
I then asked, "are you sure?" and he looked at me with the expression, "I would hope I am sure, I am the Senior Director at Yahoo Search." You know that look, you got it once or twice. :)
