How to add meta keywords in my website for SEO


#1

I need to add meta keywords for my website to optimize its search.i tried meta tag keywords and description methods but none of this techniques has worked out.if anybody knows something about this please help me


#2

No, you don't. None of the major search engines uses the meta keywords tag any more, so it's just a waste of time to add it.

I'm not sure what you mean here by using "description method". The meta description tag is important, but you need to write a good description, not use it for keyword stuffing. See Google's "Search Engine Optimization Starter Guide" for further guidance on this and other aspects of SEO.

Meta keywords aren't used in any search engine any more as too many marketers decided to keyword stuff to gain the upper hand in terms of their SEO. To be honest I'm not even sure why the option is still there in some cases to add meta keywords anymore as they are redundant.

The meta description is only important to affect your click through rate (CTR) when your pages rank. This gives the potential visitor a reason to click on your link from the Search Engine Results Page. It should be appealing and give the visitor a reason to click on the link. A good rule of thumb and something that I've found particularly good for CTR is to write a short passage and then leave a few words out as a sort of cliffhanger. For instance if I had a page ranking for a new computer game term then I would put the meta description as something like..."The all new Mega Man 15 now comes complete with the very best...".

It's a terrible example but you get the general jist.

Now that you've read this the reply, the question you should really be asking yourself is 'Does your CTR affect the ranking when in the top 10 of SERPs?'

Add high density keywords in keyword meta tag for SEO purpose in the meta section of each page in the CMS, wordpress or any other Opensource softwares. If not this then make sure your content has good keyword density with more keywords.


#7

You don't need keywords in meta anymore. Yoast might tell you it's a ranking factor, but it's not. I would concentrate more on the site title and URL.


#8

This is really outdated information. The keyword meta has no place in any website any more and should be ignored completely. The only thing it's good for is if you're trying to find your competitors targeted keywords by looking at their source which would show the keyword meta data.


#9

...and even then it's better to have a brandable site with no keywords in the URL for the main TLD as you can add pages with the keywords in afterwards.

I've ranked sites that haven't got the keyword in the main domain or even on the page URLs. Just clever (and probably lucky) placement of a keyword in the H1 tag and a couple of instances in the body copy.

I mention an example of meta tag below here.

<html>
 <head>
  <title> Title </title>

  <meta name="keywords" content="wood, furniture, garden, garden-table, etc">
  <meta name="description" content="Official dealer of wooden garden furniture.">

 </head>

<body>

</body>
</html>

Welcome to the forums @dsynergic
Please read the question and subsequent answers before posting.

The OP has already tried the keywords meta tag without results.

It is a well known fact that this tag has been obsolete in terms of SEO for many years now.


#12

Agree, its not ranking factor but no one ignore importance of good keywords. As per my experience i think keyword is not important in term of SEs But its really important thing for seo and digital marketing strategy.


#14

Hey agree with the others that google SEO is ignoring keyword tags, but I think its still a ranking factor for other major search engines (e.g. Bing & Yahoo (since Yahoo uses the Bing search) which do account for 25% of English searches) Should take a look at this guide for extra info


#15

I have problem the same, i don't known meta keyword and meta description what effect to SEO because my site don't appear in search engine


#16

I think you are mistaken. There is no mention of the keywords meta tag in the SEO Guidelines section of Bing's Webmaster Guidelines. That seems a fairly clear indication that it is not used. Indeed, a search of the guidelines for "Keywords meta tag" produces no results.


#17

thanks for the clarification!

There is a Meta tag which you can write under the head tag. In Meta tag, you can give keywords to the website and a description as well. Here are some tips that you need to take before giving the Meta tags to the website.

  • First, make some high volume keywords for the website with the help of google keyword planner.
  • Along with keeping them in the Meta tags, use your keywords three or four times in your blogs as well. Doing this helps to rank higher in the search engine.
  • After ranking higher, you can get the best organic traffic for the website.

#20

There are several meta tags you can use, each of which has a different purpose. This question is specifically about the <meta name="keywords"> tag, which is no longer used by major search engines.

<meta name="description"> is used, and is considered quite important, as the content of that is often shown in search results.

For further information, see Google's guide, linked in post #2.


#21

If you have a panel for your website then you can create it a meta keyword option and you can write the meta keyword


#24

You need to go to the source code and in the head section you need to add the keywords over there. Irrespective of what kind f platforms your website is build in you need to add the keywords there.


#25

You can write under the head tag there is an option to add Meta tag. You can add some keywords and description there.

There is a limit to how many times I want to post the same thing in the same topic, but once again, for those who have missed all the previous iterations:

Topic closed, as it seems there is nothing new to say, and the OP has never returned.
