meta keywords pollAbout a month ago, Bing confirmed they use the meta keywords tag as part of their many ranking signals.

As we said then, Yahoo did also. Most SEOs I know, at least in the publishing business, don't bother with the meta keywords but according to my poll, most will again.

So we ran a poll and have over 300 responses, they said:

  • 48% will now use the meta keywords tag
  • 30% will still not use the meta keywords tag
  • 19% said they might, depending on how much free time they have
  • 3% said "other"
