Meta Keywords not found

  • Resolved Zahid

    Hello folks

    I have been using Rank Math in all my sites for a long time (almost since its release) and I genuinely love it as an SEO plugin.

    But, I recently fount out something that is bothering my mind.

    When I look into a page/post’s HTML source code, I can not find “meta keywords” which are supposed to be the Focus Keywords.

    Is it an actual issue?

    As far as I know, from the SEO perspective, the Meta Keyword tags are essential as an on-page element.

    Can anyone please clarify this for me?

  • Hi Zahid,

    ​Thanks for your query. I would love to help with that.

    ​Please note that Google does not honor Meta Keywords for quite a long now so we never added them to the plugin.

    You can read more about that here:

    ​However, you can use the focus keyword set within Rank Math as meta keyword for your posts/pages/products using this filter in your theme’s functions.php file:

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know.

    ​Thank you.s
