Meta Keywords were once the primary method by which search engines indexed websites. Search engine providers soon realized that information stored in meta elements, especially the keyword attribute, was often unreliable and misleading. Google does not use Meta Keywords elements for indexing, except to determine whether or not your keywords are representative of the content within your site. It is important not to incorporate too many terms within the Meta Keywords as that may dilute the effectiveness of any one term or worse adversely affect the indexing your site receives.
