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.
