I’m going back to SEO 101 here.
Google has announced – again – that they DO NOT use the keywords META tag in their keyword search.
The keywords META tag, if you don’t know, looks like this:
<meta name="keywords" content="bay area web design company, alameda web design, alameda web designer, internet marketing, web design, website design, web designer, web developer, alameda, san francisco, california, web hosting">
So, if you think you can just drop your desired keywords into this tag, forget it.
NOTE: Other search engines may use the Keywords META tag, but Google does not.
