What are Meta Keywords?

When you write about a particular topic, you might use some specific words for your content that represent the whole idea about the topic. For example: if I am writing about React, a frontend framework, I will use the word React more often in my blog. So if the searcher types the word React, my content might show in its feed. This is a general idea about the meta keywords. Meta keywords can be more than one, but they should be relevant.

Now let's try to understand the meta keywords better. Meta keywords are part of the backend means they will not be visible on the live content on a site. Meta keywords help the search engine to get an idea about the content available on the page, so if a user searcher searches a particular keyword, your content gets recommended to him.

Meta keywords are included in the HTML code with the help of meta tags available in HTML.

We will see an example of meta keywords later in this article.

Create Meta Keywords

Now let’s give you a brief example of the meta keywords so you can know how to choose meta keywords for a page.  With the help of HTML, we will implement the meta keywords using the meta tag.


      <meta name=”keywords” content=”React“/>
      <h1> React </h1>
      <p> React is an open-source frontend framework developed by Facebook. React uses JSX to write code. JSX is a combination of HTML and Javascript. React is easy to learn as compared to other frameworks. </p>
