    Hello I tried to search in this forum but it seems like nobody asked this, maybe it's just too easy question lol.

    I'm using wordpress to create articles and I always put my keywords in the tags section, is it a good idea? Is that what we called meta tags?

    I can see that many websites don't even use tags anymore.

    This is one of my questions that stuck with me for a week now, thank you in advance!

    When you nofollow internal links, all it does is dillute juice from the other links. If you're gonna nofollow the tags, then remove them altogether.

    Does it help with SEO? I think if it doesn't do anything I would rather remove them because my tags are actually my keywords.

    It would be bad if any competitor see them right?

    I doesn't help in SEO. You can avoid using them if you want.
