    Hi ,

    I heard that keyword meta tags are dead is it true.What I think is, not dead because there are so many websites they are ranking with keyword meta tags.Is there any official update regarding keyword meta tag.

    Been dead for some years. You can still use them but it won't help.

    A lot of Seo plugins and CMS still use the keyword fields, pretty outdated


    Major search engines haven't used them for years. A quick Google will confirm

    Maybe it's not as effective as before but it can still contribute on your ranking somehow.
