Hello friends i want to know Do meta description and keywords still affect search engines?
The focus on keyword-based search engine optimization is dying quickly, as we’re witnessing the resurgence of long-tail keywords. Keywords once meant everything to a campaign; Google collected data about a site solely based on the keywords that were present on its pages and in its links, and companies could measure their success based on how they ranked for their target keywords. It was a simple, one-to-one relationship that made it easy for almost anybody to start stuffing and ranking.
As per the new update from Google algorithm, Keywords impact significantly to improve the page rank but meta tags may not influence the search engine rank. So it is always better to follow the Google algorithm than working hard, be a smart worker to reap the best results as per the trends.
Meta description is, giving the description about the web page in 160 characters. This is one of the method in seo, Meta keywords is dead.
A meta description is an HTML and XHTML element that describes your page to search engines. While the perceived (and real) importance of meta data has depreciated, the attribute still plays a significant role in SEO rankings.
Meta Keywords are a specific type of meta tag that appear in the HTML code of a Web page and help tell search engines what the topic of the page is.
