So I work at a website design company and I took a look at our site and we have NO keywords. This is probably because our site was created back before key words were king but I highly recommend at least adding SOME to the code of our site. It's an easy add to the header code.

Currently our html code header portion looks like this:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en">

<head>
<title>Belegarth Medieval Combat Society</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />
</head>


If it looked something like this it would have keywords and a description:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en">

<head>

<title>Belegarth Medieval Combat Society</title>

<meta name="description" content="Belegarth Medieval Combat Society is a medieval combat sport using foam weapons. Players wear medieval or fantasy garb and participate not only in combat but in large camping events that can include games, music, fantasy themes, and feasts.">

<meta name="keywords" content="medieval, fantasy, combat, sport, fighting, foam, LARP, role play, amtguard, dagorhir, Chaos Wars, Armageddon, urk, goblin, troll, roman, viking, knight, armor, United States, US, Canada, CA">

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />

</head>


So! Who moderates/updates our website...?

Yeah, that was one of the things I should have gotten around to doing.

It's honestly not that big of a deal, but it's simple enough to add, so I'll take care of it.

Also, FYI, keywords are really of very limited use anymore. They're so easy to spam that most most search engines stopped supporting them a decade ago. As far as I can tell, Yahoo is the only search engine that even uses them for their rankings anymore. Google came out a couple years ago and said they 100% do not use them: http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot. ... a-tag.html

Oh well. It won't hurt to leave them in there.

regardless i have clients wanting them all the time so i just checked out of curiosity. My company specializes in search engine optimization and they always make me use them. They do a bunch of other stuff for our clients to optimize too but this is the only piece I know of. /shrug. I don't care who's right or how it works but we should have them none the less. so thanks.
