    hi,

    please check my website.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the response.

    I have just inspected the page and it looks like all the meta tags have been applied to your pages. In regards to the keywords, I would suggest that you ensure that they appear in the page content and title and Rank Math will take care of the rest.
    Please take a look at the screenshot on the sensitive data section of how the page source looks.

    I hope this info helps.

    i couldn’t find any screenshots

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I have added a screenshot to the sensitive data section. Please note that meta keywords won’t be displayed in the page source since we do not have a field for this in Rank Math. Google also stopped recognizing this kind of meta data and this is the reason why none of the major SEO plugins have this field anymore.

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    ok. now i understand. thank you for clarifying this issue.

    how can u be so sure that Google doesn’t read metadata,
    you gave us a field for the keyword in a plugin, so it should be shown in page source as keyword tag ..

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the question.

    Google announced that they don’t use this tag back in 2009.
    Please take a look at this blog post about this:
    https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2009/09/google-does-not-use-keywords-meta-tag.html

    If you are really keen on having this tag appear on your website, you can add the following snippet on your theme’s functions.php file:

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

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Maybe I don’t understand Rank Math. I thought these keyword tags would show up in the source code. They don’t. None of the SEO check tools that I use detect any. Where are these keywords?

    Hi,

    These don’t because they have been discontinued by Google.

    These focus keywords are there only to help you optimize your content around a specific keyword.

    If you haven’t already, I highly recommend going through the following guide to set up the plugin completely and correctly:

    and

    I hope that helps. Please let me know if there’s anything I can help you with.

    I can’t fill Focus Keyword which helps we know SEO score. Help me

    Hello,

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

    Assuming you are using the latest version of all the plugins and the themes (please update if not yet), it would seem like a conflict with one of the plugins or the theme you are using.

    To determine that, please follow this troubleshooting guide:
    https://rankmath.com/kb/check-plugin-conflicts/

    Please let us know if you find the culprit.

    Only the site admin would know and your users won’t be affected by this troubleshooting.

    Looking forward to helping you.
