    Maybe it's not useless, just because some mozoid says it's useless doesn't mean it's useless.

    It might be useful to a subtle extent if done properly and not overstuffed with spam keywords.

    It shouldn't take more than 10 seconds to enter properly chosen keywords into the input field for a post and if it might help why not?

    @tunescool Are you talking about those things? Meta title, description,url? Well, yeah, they seem useless to me as well.

    Honestly, what's the point of on-page plugins these days, other than maybe guiding you a little on doing the right stuff like Yoast tells you.

    Google picks up the first H1 tag as the title, and the first paragraph as the description. At least that's what I noticed. Maybe I'm wrong.

    I think you are talking about meta keywords for your website? or Target keywords in the title, description, URL, H1, H2?. In my opinion, meta keywords seem to be useless. But, target keywords in the title, description, URL ( On-page optimization) always important.

    Yes, keywords are obsolete in meta tags and no longer necessary. Google will automatically determine keywords from your content and rank them according to its backlink score.

    Yes, it is useless. There is no need to remove kws from all of your previous posts. Just don't waste your time doing that in future posts.
