Early days

In the early era of SEO, understanding Search Engine Optimization, there was space of Keywords (KW). Meaning you could actually create a meta tag with keywords. At that time, Google and Yahoo were merely registering these words to define the page’s content.

Needless to explain that webmaster abused this method, by inserting long strings of keywords and phrases inside their page, regardless of its relevancy with the content of the page. And it worked, some pages ranked very high very quickly with this technique.

For some reason, the general public thinks that this is still a thing and continue requesting the insertion of keywords onto their website. But it’s not. Google has grown into a powerful intelligent machine that can read and understand your topic regardless of your effort to hide it.
