Are Keyword Lists Still Relevant? PRO Member

Posted by svarnum on 125 Points
I post web content almost daily for a nonprofit. Do lists of keywords on the edit page of any given article still have any value? Do search crawlers still assign any SEO weight to these? Or am I wasting my time?

    Less relevant than actual contents. If your meta keywords did NOT match the meaning of your content, I would say you were wasting your time in more ways than one. If your content is true to the keywords list, and you're posting daily, it sounds as though you're on the right track.
