    So I'm noticing more and more ranking sites which do not have keyword meta tags .

    Is this as a consequence of one of the Google updates ?

    Google officially is not supporting meta keywords (This is official, maybe they give very little value to it)

    They stopped supporting this tag long time ago because people were abusing it.

    I think that more websites without keyword meta tags are ranking because fewer and fewer people use this meta tag.

    Lately to save some time I'm sometimes not using meta keywords on my new sites and to be honest I don't see any difference.

    Yeah it's been awhile. Title tag is still the most important by far. Meta description tag is important in the sense that it gives you the opportunity to convince the searcher to click on your link.
