    For search engine like Google, keywords tag is not necessary. But it is good to have it, because not all search engine smart like Google.

    In this video, Matt Cutts from Google Web Spam team explains that Google no longer look at meta keywords to determine the rankings of web pages. I still use meta description and optimize them to improve the number of visits coming from search engines.

    It depends on you site. Their is some well established sited that done use meta keywords. However, normally those websites have there keywords in the site title.

    Nowadays, I don't think so, though I think as long as you don't 'stuff' it, it doesn't hurt.

    it hurts because competitors can assume which keywords you are optimizing for

    It is a waste of time if we are considering metatags for Google but there are a couple of other search engines who consider them. So it is better to keep them updated.

    Even Google no longer use the meta keyword in ranking a website, other search engines probably still use meta keyword as an important in ranking factor. So, there's no need to neglect the use of meta keyword.

    It really doesn't matter if you keep or ignore meta keywords. Many search engines do not consider meta keywords to rank a website in the serps.

    I don't need it since google didn't recognize it anymore.
    if you are still using meta keywords, do not over. Use 3 or 5 keywords only
