Everyone tell me "Meta keywords are useless" true ?

Hi everyone,

I'm setting SEO for my site by informing me on how filling it properly on the net, but many sites say this kind of sentences regarding meta keywords: "Meta Keywords are useless", "Meta keywords tend to disappear from SEO analyzis" or "It is no longer part of the criteria for SEO".
So, I wonder about its usefulness. I would like not to waste time filling all the meta keywords fields of all my pages if it's really useless? I'm lost with that!

Sorry for bad english.

Thanks

Hey there! Keywords aren't as heavily focused as they used to be, though I'd still recommend putting them to use. You may want to check out our guide here.
