    yeah, that's for Google News publishers. for that G does rely on keyword metatags and includes those in the news sitemap. you get to use up to 12 too!

    Had a feeling it was just for news but it indicates they do pay attention to them at times.

    I mean I wouldn't sit down and rollout a meta keyword update to a site but if I do the descriptions/titles I usually include a few on the page.
