What is a meta keyword?

Meta keywords are no longer used by Google or Bing to determine a site's ranking (relevance), so don't overthink meta keywords. Smaller search engines still might use them in their algorithm, so we recommend adding them anyway. They are invisible to site visitors both on your site on in the search engines.

How to create meta keywords

The meta keywords should follow these guidelines:

  • The meta keywords should be the same as the tags you're using in the article. The image below shows that I'm using the article's tags as its meta keywords.
  • Separate the keywords with commas.
  • Keywords do not add much value to your website anymore.

How to implement meta keywords.

Once you have determined your meta keywords by following the guidelines above, place them in your web page. Each web page should have it's own set of keywords.


<meta name="keywords" content="HTML,CSS,XML,JavaScript">

A full example so that you can see it within context:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en-US"> 
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="description" content="Free Web tutorials">
<meta name="keywords" content="HTML,CSS,XML,JavaScript">
<meta name="author" content="John Doe">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
</head> <body> Hello World </body> </html>
