    Keywords.......waste of time!

    No point to them at all.

    Disagree?

    Ok, verse your view here. Well versed answers get repped.

    i'm not really sure (i'm not any SEO guru and i follow some basics), but even if i know Google doesn't cares about Keywords nor META description i think that minor search engines uses them... so i still declare and set keywords for those small engines... (at the end keywords are free so isn't a hurt if up on a site)...

    I know the the webmasters were abusing the keywords, but why don't we give them a try ? They still useful and exactly for me they are sending me a good traffic from search engines recently! At least you do keywords spamming (I don't recommend that whatsoever) as the SEs will penalize the spammer's website for that.. Always do the white hat SEO and we will be fine!

    Keywords not useful ? hmm massively disagree with anyone that says that, Keywords is SEO its the main part of SEO with out it my sites wouldnt get huge amounts of natural traffic and i wouldnt ranks for nearly as many premium keywords in search engines, it would be a world from which long tail keywords would be the only thing bringing in natural traffic.

    yeah google still uses keywords along with otherthings

    if i didnt use the anchor text "tottenham forum" or "spurs forum" then my tottenham site wouldnt rank for them words and the natural traffic i get from these would be gone, SEO is all about optimizing your site , keywords and anchor text is apart of that process

    Now it all depends what kind of keywords you are talking about , weather its keywords in the meta tags, keywords on page or through anchor text , I think you can still rank if you miss out the meta and onpage but without anchor text you are going to find it hard to rank for anything

    Always, always use meta description and keywords on your pages. It takes seconds and not doing it is just sheer laziness and it does help some bots more than others.
