    They are considered as obsolete nowadays. This is such an old-school SEO question!

    Google has officially announced that it does not use meta keywords tag as a ranking factor. But there are still many people using it.

    Hi there,

    Yes, and you should. Meta descriptions are still used by most search engines including Google. There is some argument if meta descriptions are still a ranking factor for Google, but, it has more uses than just helping your ranking. ... The description they see below is your meta description tag.

    I hope this will help you.

    AS an SEO Company generally, we do avoid the use of additional tags for meta keywords. we can use our targetted keywords on Title, meta description, header tags, alt tags.

    Keywords also are one of the important factors in ranking. But now Google is concentrating on unique content.

    Google no longer uses meta keywords for ranking webpages in their SERPs.

    Meta tags are HTML codes that are inserted into the header on a web page, after the title tag. In the context of search engine optimization, when people refer to Meta tags, they are usually referring to the Meta description tag and the Meta keywords tag.

    Now google search engine doesn't consider meta keywords but meta title and description are using by search engine.
