    I agree, Michael did an excellent job, he definitely put some time and thought into his subject matter and presentation.
    However, I completely disagree with his thoughts on the keyword meta tag. Google has not used this tag in its ranking algorithm for many years.
    The reason they have removed it is that the tag was manipulated by so many companies attempting SEO that the effectiveness of it is completely moot.
    That decision, along with the fact that their search engine has evolved enough to semantically determine your keywords from the content (and context) of your page, has made the tag useless at this point (except if you want to let your competitors easily know your targeted phrases).
    Yes, some smaller engines may still use the tag, but do you really care about the fraction of a percent of visitors coming from this. And any search engines which are aiming to dethrone the mighty G will most likely have a more advanced algorithm which will not rely on the keyword meta tag either.

    Michael Alcantara always lays it out to make sense of SEO for the non-linear thinker. I may not learn to be very effective at SEO, myself, but I'm learning what to effectively ask of any consultant I may hire and comprehend their responses and suggestions.
