SEO Settings - Meta Keywords disappear?

Hi! Today I focused on my SEO settings of my pages. When I finished putting in my Keywords I published my site. I wanted to add a few more but then I noticed that a lot of my Meta Keywords got deleted. So is there a limit how many Keywords you can put in or where did my Keywords go?

Hey @Lisalu! There is a limit on the number of characters, though this wouldn't remove what you'd entered. What site did you see this with?

I am using Travellin - Dusk 2 theme standard page. And here is what I mean:

Picture 1: I finished putting in all of my Meta Keywords.

---> I published my website and went back to the Weebly Dashboard

Picture 2: I opened the SEO settings again and some of my keywords got deleted. In this case: a part of my 'cooking with quinoa' keyword and 'easy quinoa recipes' got erased and every keyword after that would get erased too.weeblykeywords.jpg

Ahh! Thanks for the screenshot. Yes, that would be because what you entered went past the number of characters you can enter.

I see. Thank you so much for your help! Smiley Very Happy

But is there no way to add more Keywords?

No problem! Unfortunately, it wouldn't be possible to add more. Even if it was, I'd recommend not doing that since Google would view it as keyword spamming.

Lisa:

I just finished a class on SEO, google doesnt even use meta keyword tags for seo.

The tags google cares about are title, meta description and alt image tags.

It also cares about your site page structure and on page text and off page links,

but again not meta keywords, those mattered 20years ago.
