<meta name="KEYWORDS" content="BLOG MOST INTERESTING KEYWORDS" />

  1. LOL, META keywords have been dead forever! You're just wasting your time. Too many people tried to abuse this which lead to keyword stuffing. META descriptions are still allowed but they might not necessarily be used. Content is king and that's what search engines always look at first.

    But hey, don't take MY word for it.

  2. Adding meta tags in your blog will helps to increase their online presence becuase Google Bots read Meta Tags of a site or blog and give these tags (title,keywords and description) information to Google Search Engine, according to these tags your blog is showed in Google Search Engine Results Pages.
