Keywords

  • My question is as follows,

    Yesterday and days prior I could see keywords on my website when I viewed the page source.

    From yesterday I have had no analysis which is on a separate unanswered ticket and now no keywords when I check the pages.

    I see keywords in admin backend but not the source page.

    Can I get some feedback please 🙂

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for the delay and any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Rank Math does not add the meta keywords tag to the page source since Google stopped checking this sometimes back. You can however enable this feature by adding the following code to your theme’s functions.php file:

    /**
     * Add <meta name="keywords" content="focus keywords">.
     */
    add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/show_keywords', '__return_true');

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Is it advisable to have this code on the site? I dont want to go upsetting Google

    Hi Graeme,

    Thanks for the question.

    No the tag is not necessary since it will not make any impact on your site’s SEO.
    Please take a look at the following article from Google about this:

    Google does not use the keyword meta tag in web ranking

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Thank you as always Michael.
