Meta Keywords On the top 25K Websites.

Last month I crawled the top 25K websites. I collected information relating to tag manager, titles, page load times and so on. We run a lot of these experiment at our agency and collect data to keep tabs on Google’s latest organic ranking changes.

I was surprised to see that Meta keywords aren’t dead yet. At least 15K sites from the top 25K were still carrying meta keywords.

See the table below for the breakdown.

  • All – 15221
  • Missing – 8060
  • Duplicate – 920
  • Multiple – 52

All in all a very surprising statistic.
