Google doesn't recognize the Keyword Meta Tag

A keyword meta tag or a keyword tag is used to help search engines understand what is the page about. It is a group of related phrases which emphasizes the web page. Apparently Google mentioned that they are not using the website keyword meta tag.

Google will not consider a keyword tag for a search result as of September 2009. Google also doesn’t consider it as a factor in ranking websites. This video below Matt Cutts explains why Google will not consider Keyword Tag in searches:

Spamming is the number one reason. A couple of webmasters abuse or over stuff words on their meta tags. Some often give irrelevant keywords but take note that Google does support other meta tags specifically, Title Tags and Description Tags that is why google came up with this solution.

As an SEM I still habitually putting keyword meta tags to website pages because other search engines consider it on their search results, Yahoo in particular. And that i would hardly recommend SEO/SEM to put that meta tag in every site that they SEO.

Adobe purchased Web platform builder Business Catalyst / GoodBarry

Business Catalyst's technology was built with Web designers in mind.

Adobe Systems has acquired Business Catalyst, which provides a platform for Web professionals to build online businesses, and its GoodBarry subsidiary, Adobe confirmed on Monday - Augist 31, 2009.

Business Catalyst offers an all-in-one Web site platform for Web professionals to build online businesses for clients at a fraction of the time and cost, without requiring any programming, Adobe said in a statement.

Business Catalyst "is a great complement to Adobe's existing tools and services for Web professionals, who are increasingly looking to hosted services to deliver Web sites and online businesses," the company Web site states.

GoodBarry, meanwhile, features an integrated system for running Web sites and offers email marketing. GoodBarry has been around since 2004.

"There are some changes we'll be making to GoodBarry in the coming months," according to the GoodBarry site.

"Most importantly, we'll be refocusing our marketing and sales efforts on the Web professional market (via, as opposed to Web-savvy DIYers such as you. In other words, this means that eventually we will cease 'retail' operations and focus on our wholesale operations and we will only be selling subscriptions to our software via our partner and reseller network."

The site also says GoodBarry soon will be only for Web designers. The GoodBarry brand will be shut down on 1 October.

"You'll be able to create free trials until 1st October 2009, and you'll be able to upgrade those sites until 1st of November 2009. After that date, no sites will be able to be upgraded via GoodBarry," the site states.

The current Business Catalyst team is expected to remain largely intact at Adobe, Business Catalyst said.

The company also expressed a continued commitment to partners and customers. Adobe did not provide information on the cost of the acquisition.
