Is meta keywords still relevant?
I read something the other day talking about meta keywords not meaning anything anymore and that search engines don't use it to rank which I never really thought they did anyway at least from meta keywords.
Anyway the article talked about how not having meta keywords people can't do a yahoo page source view and see what your keywords are. Also since search engines now claim they get more info from your articles and looking for keywords there could the article be true and we don't really need to worry about keywords in our meta data.
I have looked at some really big sites in different businesses and see many that don't have any meta keywords in the background so it seems some of what the article says may be true. What are your thoughts?
