Death of a Meta tag Salesman
Caught this story on /. this morning. Two articles on the end of the usefulness of keyword meta tags; An End to Metatags (Enough Already, Part 1) by Traffic.com's Andrew Goodman, and the answering Death of a Meta Tag by Search Engine Watch's Danny Sullivan.
The take away is that expending energy on creating the perfect meta keyword tag has become a pointless exercise, with only one major search engine—Inktomi—still paying any attention at all to this much abused method of increasing listings rank.Posted by Lewis Francis at October 2, 2002 9:16 AM
