    You can leave the meta KW it won't hurt the SEO ranking simply stop adding meta keyword in the future. Before it was a common practice so G won't penalyse web sites which has been using that before.

    If it was my site i'd just junk them. Depends how much effort is needed though! If it's a custom CMS and would need hours of coding them maybe just ignore it.

    amazon ranks for a bunch of keywords and still has meta keywords in head. So don't bother.

    Meta keywords no longer have SEO value. You may leave them blank or limit it to the ones that would best describe the site's content. Don't go crazy on adding meta keywords if your client wants you to add them.

    Home Page:
    googlebot is unpredictable and multiple variables are always working in the background. assuming a site lost tremendous rank on the basis of meta keywords is likely a false dilemma
