    Did you check the settings at (yoursite)/wp-admin/admin.php?page=wpseo_titles

    You can turn on the meta keywords setting there. It may actually have been set to off by default in one of the recent updates. I think I remember reading that in the changelog.

    BTW, search engines do not use the meta keyword tag. But some other sites, like maybe some social bookmarking sites, may use them to help categorize what you post there – so it isn’t a complete waste of time to add them.

    Thanks for the reply , so how do search engines read our site? with meta tags? home title ? descriptions?
    I knew that title , keywords , description , thats how you show on the search engine with a specific keyword , like ” humor ” for example , or is it all about anchor text that is used on other websites that link to you? and the meta keywords dont matter?

    Google and other search engines use hundreds of different things, on the page and off to determine what the site is about. For the most part, Google learns what your site or page is very similar to the way a person does – by what it actually says on the page and in the title. And the search engines also factor in all those other ways of determining how relevant the page is to the user’s search query, how important or popular it is, etc.

    Google’s SEO Starter Guide does a pretty good job of explaining how it works and is something you should read BEFORE you start doing your own SEO.

    Thanks for the advice , well this is my first website and i had to learn everything by myself from forums , including a bit of seo , now my website is PR 4 alexa rank 200.000 and ranking for few keywords with over 100.000 exact match searches , it’s only 7 months old my website , and i was thinking that meta keywords count a lot to rank on those specific keywords , seo quake a plugin for chrome advised that i should use meta keywords and few other sites said same thing ,thats why i thought it was so important .
