This is the impresison I get. As Keyword meta-data is so easy to, ahem, tweak to
your advantage, I *think* that search engines have stopped indexing it for
searches (as far as I can tell)

However, some do use Keywords and/or (or, rather, especially) Description when
they return a search result, which makes it more important than ever to create
these in a human-optimised rather than SE-optimised way, I think.

Any comments?
