Google throws out use of keywords in web ranking

I know this is kinda old news but on Monday, September 21, 2009, Google decided it was time to address what has been a major question for many SEO novices as it had officially put the description meta tag to worthlessness in terms of Search engine optimization. More Google users had this same question but needed to have a confirmation.

The issue that Google was seeking to address was the duplicate keywords that web managers on different sites were using to manipulate their page ranking but google webmaster central blog explicitly explains that as of September 2009, Google’s web search results stopped the use of “keywords” meta tag in search ranking and secondly, because many years ago people abused the tag as stuffed irrelevant keywords without any web users ever seeing those keywords.

When asked why Google did not use keywords Meta tag, The answer was historical, dating back as far as 1999 were search engines judged pages only on the content of web pages, not any so-called “off-page” factors such as the links pointing to a web page.

Does this mean that Google ignores all meta tags? No, Google does support several other meta tags for example, “description” meta tag as the text for our search results snippets.

But even the use of the description tag has no effect on the web ranking of that particular website. With the trend that google is taking until today seems to most search engine experts that google is most likely not to use keyword tags in the future though google still explains that they could use the keywords if opportunity arose. So do not throw your keywords away.

SO in most cases, the web user will search your web page and it will have changed location but the search engines will still produce the old links.

If you need to change the URL of a page as it is shown in search engine results, we recommended that you use a server-side 301 redirect. This is the best way to ensure that users and search engines are directed to the correct page. The 301 status code means that a page has permanently moved to a new location.

301 redirects are particularly useful in the following circumstances:

  • You’ve moved your site to a new domain, and you want to make the transition as seamless as possible.
  • People access your site through several different URLs. If, for example, your home page can be reached in multiple ways – for instance, http://example.com/home, http://home.example.com, or http://www.example.com – it’s a good idea to pick one of those URLs as your preferred (canonical) destination, and use 301 redirects to send traffic from the other URLs to your preferred URL. You can also use Webmaster Tools to set your
